Wow drop out at age 12.
I like it but i'd guess upper class Democrats won't.
He goes not to lament the lack of family supporting jobs for those without school credentials. He claims there used to be those great factory jobs in the past but now there are no options for them. On that he is ignorant, in free to build areas, like my city Gainesville FL, blue collar high school dropouts can and do do better than those with their schooling ability ever did. My son hated school and after High School took a job as a laborer with a plumber. He now make about the median income of the USA and owns a home outright he is 27 and is close to having enough money to retire.
Restricting building is a double negative for High School dropouts. It eliminates the jobs of building and pushes up home prices and rents. It also creates jobs for lawyers fighting to get permission to build.
It is the biggest Government sin of our time.
Some evidence that dropouts can do great if they have a little wisdom and live in free to build areas:
The Amish generally drop out of school at 16 and do fine.
Meanwhile many college grads struggle made worse by there debt. The student loan program being another bad sin of Government. (That and the 30 year mortgage.) Neither would not exists without Government backing.
DeBoer needs to get out an look at the world. Wisdom trumps smart even today.
