Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates on Education
March 7, 2011

Could the Bill Gates-Steve Jobs rivalry extend to educational philosophy? Gates last week gave a talk to the nation's governors in which he urged a focus on "categories [of courses] that help fill jobs and drive that state economy in the future." But in a talk last week in which he unveiled the latest Apple products, Jobs urged a broader focus for education -- and specifically praised the liberal arts. "It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough -- it's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing and nowhere is that more true than in these post-PC devices," Jobs said, according to an account in The Seattle Times.
