Good post Life experience is so valuable to pass on, learning from others successes and mistakes could make such a difference to impressionable youngsters. The government were very keen on employing ex servicemen as teachers, not sure how that panned out. The same lack of experience can be said for many elected politicians who have absolutely no experience in commerce or real life. What life experience did somebody like Cameron have, school, university, political advisor (dogsbody) MP, PM. Maybe the country should be run by the vastly knowledgable over 65s.
