New skills and knowledge can spark a lifetime of change. Every day, EDC’s programs in education, health, and economic development deliver life-changing opportunities to those who need them most. I don’t expect my chemistry and science students to memorize the order of elements in the periodic table. They will have easy access to a version of the table throughout their education.

Reread your own posts. You have been inflexible.
