I am just glad I wasn't born in the USA.
Don't missunderstand me, I think the US is great, but the education system is **** .

Just have a look at my education:
7 years in Child school
3 years in High school
3 years in Trade school (2 years as an automation technician)

After trade school, I got a job in a offshore & onshore industrial service company (oil & gas industry), as an apprentice.

not trying to down talk your opinion but in the US it's just about the same as you described. Depending on the trade you do you can very easily live off of your salary.

In the USA, our universities are top-notch, but yeah, our public schools are some of the worst in the world.

As a Us citizen, I don't really have anything against my country and its common people (government and total morons are the things I don't like) but I would have honestly liked to have been born elsewhere in Europe like Germany or something.

I went to a semi-private technical high school here in the US and graduated with the equivalent of bachelors degrees in both mechanical and architectural engineering, I hate doing them, but they are a skill I have and can use if nothing else

Gotta agree with this one, 10 years of primal school, 2 years of high scool, 2 years of apprenticeship.

Got 3 months left of my apprenticeship, and i'll be making 50k $ a year.

Seems as I mixed school names, alfibrakiz is right.

7 years elementary
3 years middle school
3 years trade school
And then 1,5 year as an apprentice (10 months complete)

Ah, who needs education anyways.

I dropped out of high school and I'm making 70k a year at 19, if you get good at what you do and show companies that you are, then it's not really hard to get a decent job.

Forgot to mention:
I have never taken a loan.
School in Norway is free.
I have been working for 10 months now, and I have 15120$ USD in my bank account.
So I encourage people to come to Norway for work, we are actually lacking people, we have to much work and to few people.
