Lifelong Job Training: the Right Philosophy

I heartily endorse the Opinion page piece "Lifelong Job Training," April 16. I have spent the past 50 years gaining a technical education and supervising or educating people for technical employment. This includes serving on active duty in the US Navy for 21 years in various technical assignments, gaining three degrees in electrical engineering, including a PhD, and serving as an electrical engineering faculty member for 28 years.

I experimented with some of the concepts suggested by the authors during a period of nine years in which I served as director of engineering technology at a major university. They are on the right track. American business, labor, and government must all recognize and adopt a philosophy of "lifelong living and training for workers." Samuel V. Bell, Louisville, Ky.
