They don't need reading, they need to know how to cut pulp wood. That will be the only way to put food on the table in this county.

the question I have is ,by writing do they really mean writing or printing? It is my understanding that the children in school are not taught writing as we as adults know it,,,they only are taught printing.I was told the reason for it not being taught is in the future you will not need to write,,,
and if it is writing (as we adults think of writing)will it be taught in school as well ?
