No fair making things up. Real spending on public education in the U.S. at least tripled from the 1960's to the 1980's, and has continue to rise, if at a more subdued pace. Shop classes went away for one reason and one reason only: the Education Mafia goal of "College for All".

The college-for-all crusade has outlived its usefulness. Time to ditch it. Like the crusade to make all Americans homeowners, it?s now doing more harm than good. It looms as the largest mistake in educational policy since World War II, even though higher education?s expansion also ranks as one of America?s great postwar triumphs.
