President Obama's instinct that staying in school is better than dropping out altogether is absolutely correct. It's just that if we're going to compel kids to stay in school, we need to make their schooling compelling.

There’s room in the movement for everyone who cares, whether their bent is for deadly serious de-industrialization, “fun and sexy” protests, technological innovation, or even, yes, going out walking. Don't stand there asking what to do! Look around, roll up your sleeves and get busy! Offer your talents to the task. If you can write, start writing and share your thoughts with ever wider circles of readers. If you can farm, start an organic CSA. If you are an engineer, you should be focusing on renewable energy.
