Put America First

For over 100 years, Americans have supported universally available public education* – at least through grade 12. Why in 2017 can’t universal higher/trade education + physical, mental, and dental care (not insurance) be discussed without people losing their freaking minds?

If a high school-educated populace was useful to the industrial, and later tech revolutions of the 20th century, imagine what a population with universal higher/trade education and unencumbered by health care/insurance worries for ourselves, our children and our parents, could mean for the 21st. As a country, we’re already spending the money, let’s discuss the return on that investment.

How about we really put America first!

*Yes, I know it took most of the last century to get to Brown v Board of Education – a mistake made and not to be repeated.
