The boomer generation had to work 300 hours at a minimum wage job to pay for an education. Today the same degree costs 4400 hours. This isn’t sustainable if we, as the United States want to be competitive. Gone are the days where humans do manufacturing, where significant portions of the population can work trade jobs. Now it requires very technical knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to have a career that pays the bills and has upward mobility, to be able to contribute to society. The clowns who say school is liberal, or that education is useless are simple. They cannot see the world for what it is, and are merely tools to be used, they are blinded by their own fragile feelings and sensibilities, manipulated by those who seek to gain more by paying less into society. These people bang their pots and pans, yelling about the evils of truth and facts because those truths threaten their simple-minded world view. They are snowflakes. They have no roll in a discussion about the future of our children, and our nation, because they themselves have no future.
