My comment in this blog is that our whole society pays far more attention to that 11% of people who voluntarily drop out of high school, showing concern for them for their whole life, than we do to the 89% who don't.
What is amazing is the significant wealth that is now accumulating among the people who complete high school and the astounding wealth of those who complete college.
More than 400,000 American families earned over $1 million last year, (based on my projections of California Income Tax data from two years ago) and 1,500,000 American families earned over half a million dollars.
That is one hell of a lot of money walking around the streets. There are a million and a half ordinary Americans earning over half a million dollars. This explains the price of housing, for me, and the astounding sales of luxury goods.
Why can't we learn more about these prosperous people? Why can't there be more focus on the incredible personal wealth that this country creates for ordinary people?
