A Catch - 22 Or Just A Bad Idea
I agree we all need to learn, but it's pretty much proven that schools in this country don't really do the job at any level. We spend untold thousands per student to produce nothing, either drop outs who staff the low end, or robots who know just enough to work in offices and the few factories left. As in the past most could go as far as grade school and survive as well as they do now without the horrendous expense.
Let's talk about college, I know of a couple of PH.d.'s who are living on the street homeless, I've read that others with advanced degrees are serving burgers at McDonalds and Burger King, or working in jobs that have nothing to do with their major. Better educated, to some extent, robots essentially. College is a complete waste of money for most, who build up thousands in student loans, rarely get the better jobs, as there simply aren't that many to be had, and spend the rest of their poor lives trying to pay off the student loans.
The only ones that profit are the over paid and in many cases under educated teachers, the schools and those who run them, also over paid, and the banks who provide college students with horrendously expensive student loans. My opinion...
