How would you define "better educated"? Better educated to do what?
When we had the draft, and many, many very good men went off to war for the USA , our Constitution and of course all of our "RIGHTS", at the induction event, were these brave men, asked if they were "better educated"?
Progress in the US over the centuries has been possible because of our FREEDOM! And that FREEDOM was earned,not because our brave, young men ( and women) had higher degrees of education , but because they and their families made huge sacrifices ( including the loss of their lives) so that generations of Americans would have the freedom to discuss nonsense like "BETTER EDUCATION:.
I don't care about the EDUCATION of any man or women, willing to sacrifice their lives ( in the military etc) so that all Americans can be free.
When the 1st responders came to the WTC on 9/1/01, were they asked at the door to the Towers, "Are you one of the better educated"? "If not, we won't permit you to enter the building, risk your lives and help save thousands of other"!
Shame on you for equating "better educated" with the grit, bravery and human sacrifice of so many Americans!
