Steve Jobs’ Education Background

American business man Steve Jobs is probably best known for being the former CEO of Apple Inc. He has also served as the chief executive of Pixar Animation Studio and has served as a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company. On August 24, 2011, Jobs publicly announced his resignation from his job as the CEO of Apple and was then appointed chairman of the company’s board of directors. EDUinReview will now take a look at this creative man’s education background.

Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, in San Francisco, California. He was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs; the couple also adopted another child, Patti, who became Jobs’ sister. His biological parents are Abdulfattah Handali and Joanne Simpson, who later married and had another child, Mona Simpson.

Jobs graduated from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California, in 1972. While in high school, Jobs spent his free time attending various after-school lectures at the Hewlett-Packard Company, where he also worked with Steve Wozniak as a summer employee.

After high school, Jobs attended Reed College for one semester but then dropped out. In 1974, he started going to Homebrew Computer Club meetings with Wozniak and began working for Atari. He saved his money and then traveled to India with a college friend, Daniel Kottke. He returned from India and continued working at Atari.

Now, Colin Diver, Reed’s president, has been ordered by local law enforcement authorities to get the drug abuse at Reed College under control. This could prove to be quite a problem, since Reed College has long been known as a hot-spot for drug use.

“When you say Reed, two words often come to mind,” Diver said. “One is brains. One is drugs.”

Anti-Semitism Sparks College Newspaper Debates

A few weeks ago a swastika graffiti was found in a library bathroom at Lewis & Clark College. The student body and faculty at Lewis & Clark College were very upset about the graffiti.

Last week, another liberal arts college, Reed College, published a satirical article about the issue in their humor-based-newspaper, The Pamphlette.

The article claimed that students had killed all Jews on their campus. The opening paragraph states:
“In what is being called a ‘tragic, but all too predictable’ event, the staff of The Leaphlette, a student humor publication at Lewis & Clark College, have been accused of rounding up and gassing all of the Jews on their Portland, OR, campus.” Read the rest of this entry »
