    Times are changing Mike and a high school diploma isn't what it once was. I'll side SOMEHWAT with rd on this one. there are schools online/charter schools that are offering much better educations than what you can get at a public school. heck, I know some homeschooled kids that know a whole lot more than 99% of those in the public sector.
    my company looks for college degrees or relavent experience when seeking salaried people. I can guarantee that I know 100% more in my 25 years with this company in running a big box retail store/logistics/distribution than some 25y.o. kid out of college. sure, he's probably a lot more versed in english/literature/calculus and in some jobs, those do matter, but not every career out there needs schooling. heck, let me shadow you for 2 years as your intern and I bet I pick up on the job just as well as a guy that has a 4yr engineering degree. back in the day, that's how you learned. lot to be said for that.

    I agree with you completly, i wish HS education was taken more seriously, and was pushed to be a lot better. Yea if you shadowed me for couple years prolly less you could do my exact job, but when it comes to troubleshooting thats when the real education begins. I hate teaching people how to troubleshoot problems because it always goes back to the basic operation of electrical motors, gears, valves, stuff you learn in electrical field schooling.

    I have a couple of them but I think everybody ought to be able to get what they can get -- degree or not. There's no automatics in this free society. I'm actually glad that in many fields they understand that experience counts for something. For a sales job, would you rather hire a kid with a liberal arts education or a guy that maybe served in the military and worked for 10 years?

    I make them sell me on why they would be best. Or give them something crazy and tell them to make me want to buy it

    I got much love for the military, i really do. My pop was 20 years, my Grandpa was X Military, i spent 12 yrs in military academy growing up. I guess my main thing is with this all is i dont care where your from, who you are, there are certain jobs that require experience in that field, or a degree.

    I will say its irks me to no end to see X military people who dont even goto college, since the military pays for it. Every x military person that didnt do 20 should be getting a degree.
