: What you have failed to realize is that our standards are constantly rising and there always seem to be people who are above average. In the next twenty years, the minimum education that people will need to function in society will probably be far greater (this will probably come about with the advent of new technologies).
Only 25% of all American jobs require any education above a high school level (Business Week, 1 September 1997, p. 67).
By the year 2005, 'the growing supply of college grads could outstrip growth in demand by as much as 330,000 annually' (Business Week, 6 October 1997, p. 30).
Concerning YOUR predictions about what will occur in twenty years---WHERE ARE YOUR FACTS?
Or are you just making stuff up as you go along (like a certain ex-President who eventually lost his marbles)?
