Tech, taxes and education

Lots of feedback on today’s column on the tech industry, education and tax breaks.

Mostly I’ve heard from people who don’t think money alone is the answer to school problems. It’s a great topic but I don’t want to stray too far from technology and business subjects.

One thing I didn’t mention today — Microsoft’s interest in education isn’t new or specific to Washington state. Along with other big tech companies like Intel, Microsoft has brought similar concerns about education and workforce preparedness to Congress.

Hopefully it’s putting a little more oomph into its back yard.
