America is one generation away from disaster. 25% of Americans who start high school do not graduate. Those entering the workforce without a high school diploma face an unemployment rate three-and- a-half times the rate of those with a college degree. The following nations now have a larger percentage of college graduates than the U.S.: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Without an educated workforce, U.S. Corporations will need to go overseas to fill the jobs we need to run our economy in the next 20 years.
