Part of that is because the colleges and universities have convinced the government to advertise that everyone needs a college education and the government can help them pay for it. Meanwhile, these graduates can program a computer all day long [or whatever their major is] but cannot identify a Phillips screwdriver -- They will say, "Is that the plus or the minus?"

I would bet many public schools have moved away from offering shop [wood, metal, auto, electrical, etc.], too.

PRIVATE universities leading the charge on that one. The free market beat the government again. And since this is a democracy that means the free market has beat us all and is taking our money. I'd like to find this free market one day and tell him what I think of him.
