[azsesvxc] Barriers to education

1. By placing barriers to education, society ensures itself a large pool of unskilled labor which can be paid low wages because high supply.

2. By placing barriers to education, it artificially decreases supply of high-skilled labor, resulting in higher wages for the educated.

Are barriers actually happening for these reasons?  Cynicism would predict yes, but several difficulties:

There would both be demand and supply for education without the barriers.  Free market must be thwarted.

Several other models of education must be at least partially wrong: Education does not teach anything.  There are barriers after education.
