The problem is that the Universities and colleges have over promised. As an example, we had 2 hires where one was from a 4 yr University and the other took UNIX, Oracle and Cisco certs. The one with the certs was useful right out of the box. The other took months to get them acclimated to the environment. You can get enough out of the self help and on-line programming to be useful for a fraction of the cost. Bottom line: The industries need to drive the curriculum and maybe even direct the curriculum to emphasize what is needed by the industry and not some useless administrator or bureaucrat

Like it or not, the current school system is obsolete. And the NEA will fight tooth and nail to hold on to it because it is their path to power. And it will be gone before they know anything about it.

Those looking for a reason for sluggish housing, weak retail sales, and low family formations rates, need only look at the plight of millennials (those aged 18-33).

Many millennials have no job, high student debt with no way to pay the debt off, and few job opportunities beyond part-time employment in food services or retail.

Millennials are the ones who Obama targeted to pay for Obamacare. Indeed, the forced inclusion of youth (who will overpay for health care) is supposedly what made Obamacare "affordable".

Yet, even with the screw job on...
