    We hear that our American public education system is failing all the time. Well, you get what you pay for. Who in their right mind would go to work for less than 30,000 a year at a full-time job with the responsibility of being in charge of educating between 40 and 60 kids per day? Here is a great example of how the public is failing to support public education. Now, either support public education, or allow the private sector to take over and empty your pocket book, because education of our youth is not cheap at any level. Decide what you want to do regarding spending money on education, or shut up and allow the professionals who are the public educators do their job with the small and inadequate budget they are allowed.

    Yes, the cost of education is high. Not nearly as costly as the cost of the lack of education.

    China and India are both graduating far more engineers than is the US. In fact, even little South Korea graduates more engineers than we do.

    China and India have a greater propensity to engage in a limited selection process that also includes the relegation of many into low-skilled vocational work.

    And the present lack of real subject matter in public schools, the present cost of higher education in the US does not?
