We just need to transfer wealth from those with a lot to everyone else -- like we did when America was the greatest economic power and had the best education.
+1, I agree...
In other parts of the world, where there there is universal healthcare and decent unemployment support, politicians argue that we cannot afford not to give everybody an education. Because there will no jobs for people without an education.
Note, I'm not saying that everybody needs a STEM degree, or a degree at all. Just an education (without having to accumulate debt).
