Jobs On A RANT

Here are two quotes from the AppleInsider that may have some validity; but ONLY if you're new to teaching. 
[Thoughts From Apple CEO Steve Jobs]
Jobs said the problem with U.S. institutions is that they have become unionized to a point where ridding public schools of poor teachers is prohibited. "This unionization and lifetime employment of K-12 teachers is off-the-charts crazy," he said.

Wait…there's more!

"During his speech, Jobs reportedly told the crowd that he envisioned future schools where textbooks would be replaced with a free, online information source that are constantly updated by experts, like the online encyclopedia Wikipedia."  (via AppleInsider)

Is this realistic? Future schools are now! Teachers (from what I've been told) are already doing this. Is Jobs right with his rant?
