KAMLOOPS — We are spending an awful lot of money these days on educational programs aimed at various things. We are spending a lot trying to educate the public about drug use, about spotting behavior in our kids that could indicate drug use. We spend a lot on various safety programs, about preventing violence and bullying, whether online or in the workplace. We spend a lot trying to convince people to change the way they do things. But often I wonder whether it’s just largely a waste of time.
