    from the field of candidates to satisfy the "at least one" requirement

    If the path generally chosen by societies were pro football playing, I would agree with you. Pro football intrinsically "leaves a helluva lot of people out".

    Education does not intrinsically leave a lot of people out. It leaves a few out (mentally handicapped, for example). Bad implementations, of the education route, on the other hand, DO leave a lot of people out. That's how we know the implementations are bad, in fact (lol).

      and still  need a trade school...I mean. Most people don't know how to fxi their own car. That is a lost skill.

      just saying.

        Not explicitly, nor by implication, nor by even so much as suggestion.

        I hereby officially agree with you that there are many, many, MANY things that require a lot of skill, practice, etc.

          to provide roadmap to inter-generation success FOR ANYTHING you want to do.

          Rather, I think it's society's job to provide AT LEAST ONE decent way to achieve inter-generational success

          i just assumed you meant higher education for the One Roadmap To Sucess, ie not trade schools and the like.

          assuming stuff is not good though.

            Possibly my memory is failing. If so, my apologies.

              I assumed you meant University for the "at least one". Not trade schools.

              hence my confusion. But I now I understand.

              Trade schools must count as well, and community colleges, ect., in your argument.

              My bad, :)
