Subject: RE: Why can't education be like it was in the 60"s
In the late 1950's and early 1960's 12-15% went on to college. Then came Viet Nam and voila 40% of the male HS grads went into hiding in the school system by the early 1970's. Now we see figures putting 70% as going on to post HS education.
Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan got the gals going and Dr King helped the people of color to move into higher education. Now our engineers can design a better mousetrap and our finance geeks can finance it with fiat money growth credit swap projection financing but not one freekin' American has the skills to build it; Therefore some barefoot 13 yearold in Indochina gets the call.
Honestly does our server at WeBeTacos'n'Crap really need an associates degree from Fredrick Russell Jones Community College?
In the 1960's NYC saw the advent of College Prep paths and even SP(special progress/ grade skipping) to move the bright one along. Now we have 674 programs to deal with underachievers and the social scared kids that were left behind. What happened to The S.S.John W. Brown type Schools?
