Valuing low-skill occupations

Regarding the article: ``Up for Reinvention: Job Retraining,'' Feb 18: The article states: ``Services will provide the bulk of the economy's new jobs, and this sector includes many relatively low-skill occupations such as retail sales clerks, child-care workers, and waiters. But the sector also includes fast-growing professional fields such as computer programming and paralegal work.''

I despair over our social and educational progress in a society where those who interact with computers are valued over those who interact with our children. Jeanne Davis, Augusta, Maine
