US Graduation Rate Ranked 18, School Budgets Squeezed (NBC Videos)

NBC's Nightly News talked about the public finance and education crisis in the US.  "Four decades ago America had the best high school graduation rate in the world but by 2006 it had slipped to 18th out of 24 industrialized countries" (Brian Williams).  What the hell happened?  This is happening when school funding is scarce and schools are closing down.  Kansas City might shut down half their schools (700 jobs would be cut) and Illinois could cut school spending by 17% if they can't raise taxes.  Regarding those students who do graduate, James Altucher says don't send your kids to college, it's a scam (lol).  Watch the videos.
