Intel’s Craig Barrett says K-12 schools in the U.S. must measure themselves against the world and not just against each other. The chairman of the world’s largest chip company spoke about improving America’s economic competitiveness before writers and journalists at a conference of the Education Writers Association in New Orleans. “It’s not a patriotic thing, it’s not a nationalist thing–I just chase the best talent,” Barrett explained, referring to Intel’s practice of hiring workers globally. “If the education system is better elsewhere, talent is more productive, that’s where I’ll go.” But he added, “I want for my grandchildren the same opportunity that I had when the United States was essentially the only game in town.”
