It depends. I have mixed feelings. While I was against the culture a lot of times that exists in public schools looking back it gave me a good perspective on all people and how to treat them. I have some friends who went to private school who are now in college but their whole demeanor towards regular or less fortunate people is that they are better people. Their close mindedness appalls me. They are really going to have a hard time appealing to folks in the real world.
"In any system with finite resources and infinite expansion of population—like your business, or like all of humanity—innovation is essential for not only success but also survival. The innovators are our leaders. You cannot separate the two. Whether it is by thought, technology or organization, innovation is our only hope to solve our challenges."
