Re: If low skill jobs are open to automation

"Then why do we keep importing lowskilled workers and allowing children to leave school without sufficent education to get high skilled jobs?"

The metric used to evaluate the head's performance is based on graduation numbers, not skill level of the students graduating. The ultimate used in Baltimore, MD is to just graduate everybody whether they have shown up to class or not. The staff and school board all get top marks for their achievement and raises all around instead of massive cuts to the annual budget since there are only 5 backsides in seats in any particular classroom and they are there because they are so stoned they can't think of anyplace else to go and the AC is on and they'll get a free lunch.
