    No, "education" in this country is "deplorable". The items you mention are just "basics" not the things which you need to know to " lead" or get society knowledge or psychological insight into the why and how to run an industry or government.

    Let alone "worldwide" knowledge about developed countries; our history is barely 300 years old; China 6000 years old for instance. Also the "gap" here exits between "college" and the "industry" required knowledge. I was lucky in Europe that they prepare you for he industry. At my High Technical College they were connected with the industry ( Philips and others) who then once a week gave their own "skill" classes in their factories/facilities. The same as I later received from Fokker Aircraft, Mc. Donnell Douglas, Boeing, Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney, Lockheed , Dornier, CIT etc.so that I knew these aircraft from the drawing board until delivery inside out. So I climbed the ladder fast because of all the company courses as well contracting, legal, technical, support logistics, finance and cost, negotiation skills, human interface as well knowledge of 4 languages and of course what the world is all about (not just knowledge about this "island"). The mistake in the US is that most training is not for free; mine were all "free". So wake up America ; "Algebra etc." just wont get you an job!!

    So while the Europeans are operating a fork lift.. we're operating a space craft.

    I guess that is why Trump wants to terminate the "space program" No wonder it gives no return on investment in the short term, but may be helpful to develop new idea's. However you forget the ESA ( European Space program) which put up lots of more advanced satellites than the US. Don't forget the Russians either, who are helping us to get to the Space Station. Thus we are not operating an spacecraft right now, but only an "supply" rocket ( if it does not crash; like lately) Wake up and "melt" "iceman"!!! People like you are pure "island" inhabitants who now nothing about the world around you or worked around the world. Wake up this is an island which does not except progress like high speed trains etc. which are used in Europe for more than 10 years already or accept that China is way ahead of us technology speaking. The wars and military are more important here, than progress on the civil front. I guess you would love an Ferrari or Lambo, but they are not built here!!!
