People joining the US workforce today are less educated than those leaving it


High schools across the US have been dubbed "dropout factories." 
Things are looking grim for young Americans starting work.

According to a new report on the state of US education from the Council on Foreign Relations, Americans going into the labor force today are less educated than those retiring from it. This phenomenon is unique among developed countries. For 55- to 64-year-olds, the US has the highest percentage of high-school graduates and the third-highest percentage of college graduates; in people aged 25 to 34, the country is 10th and 13th respectively.
