I don't need that guy for that. That's... not my point. In fact i'm not even sure he's doing that. This is not a left vs. right thing. This is a that guy is vapid, kind of dishonest and not as smart as he thinks he is... thing. Anyway, i'm making a mental note on the Eboshi thing. So maybe, to the guy's credit, you all may have to suffer through one of my obtuse rants as a result of all this. Wait, so you have an adult education institution in direct control and ownership e.g. owning buildings, paying teachers directly etc? That's cool. I'm impressed. We have that semi-privatised version. Not good. Since i suspect that your question is a polite proxy, i invite you to ask for what - presumably - you actually want to get at with that question. Because between three cultures, two languages and personal perspectives answering that question with a high degree of precision would be laborious.
