Jobs Coming Back Home, But Who Will Do Them

Another article reinforcing that jobs are moving back home from overseas, but with some interesting caveats which I agree with whole-heartedly.  The jobs that seem to be coming back require high quality well educated workers.  This highlights the country's need for a workable plan for educating the U.S. citizenry to the highest degree possible.

The disincentive that currently exists is that the cost of higher education has become impractically high.  So much so that many believe the cost is just not worth it.  We desperately need to be more creative in finding ways to dramatically decrease the cost without sacrificing quality.  Whether we pay for higher education individually or as a nation with shared goals and objectives it seems paramount that the cost come down dramatically.
