Jay O’Connell. Things Worth Knowing. (Fantasy and Science Fiction, March/April 2015)

fsf150304Another dark, near-future story form O’Connell.

Here he looks at public schooling (not to give away too much, but teachers are in short supply and it’s all done online, and the school caretaker is armed), and recruitment practices from the MegaCorps. They’re not backward in coming forward in recruiting talent from school….

For my taste O’Connell takes it just a little too far to be a truly satisfying story.
