    Default US education system K-12 collapse will make finsec crisis worse

    US education system K-12 collapse will make finsec crisis worse...

    For some reason this thread seems to have gone in the Higher Education direction -- and I was not predicting that it would happen when I initially posted.

    The K-12 problems in the US are profound, and not new -- the collapse was all but permanent at the end of the Cold War (1989-1992).

    The US has a vast part of its population, of Adult age (but young aka Under 40) -- that is not interested in learning and totally out of touch with reality.

    For about ~35% of the US public school population, it is almost impossible to distinguish between Special Education kids and the normal ones (NB: The SP ED kids are at least more obedient or academically inclined, Believe it or not...).

    Unlike in the 1930s when the economy collapsed -- the education system held in a simi-intact sate. The end result was a boom time after WWII ... and intense technological and social innovations and changes.

    That will not happen with this Titanic Hyperdepression.

    The US population with 1982-Present graduation dates is not like this so called American Imperialist "Greatest Generation" (it is not a Canadian or Mexican concept, least you forget).

    I am not against this thread continuing on with respect to the problems of US higher education, but the K-12 problems have grown so profound that the US universities may soon find themselves admitting fewer and fewer domestic students -- or even firing 50% of their workforce (UW Seattle has about 30,000 Students and STAFF, since when did a ~1:1 ratio like this come into being ... and this research uni is not unique.).
