Unfortunately, our educational establishment abolished vocational type education in the High Schools. Many kids would be better off learning job skills in HS rather than a half hearted college prep.
I know Layfayette well and you even have Purdue grads working on assembly lines because the work is more rewarding and the pay is good.
We need more young american’s in vocational and apprentice programs to fill the skilled job requirements. I really think our liberal education looks down of skilled trades jobs...they are prejudice against the working class.

No doubt about it.

We need to look down on schooling. We need to return to the days when schooling was mocked. Bring back Professor Irwin Corey!

Bring back eighth grade dropouts and apprenticeships.

But dropping out and apprenticeships will only work without a dole. Otherwise, all incentive to work is eliminated.

Bring back vagrancy laws too.

Well, we won't have to wait too much longer for reality and sanity to return.
