It's plain from these comments exactly WHY we have a 42% drop-out rate in NC. Keep cutting education - pretty soon, we'll have a state (AND nation) of low-skilled workers. Those low-skill jobs are evaporating every day, employers now look for highly skilled employees. We're not even BEGINNING to keep pace, educationally, with the emerging nations. But keep on cuttin' education, folks . . . we can pay now, or we can pay later, when other countries begin to kick our a** with the skilled workers that are needed today AND tomorrow.
