It's very possible that we may back slide into an age of ignorance, and Government being in control of education might just promise it.
Automation requires a lot more technical skills and the jobs that go away due to automation didn't require that much training in the first place.

Well if Trump has his way the Department of Education will be abolished and school choice will become more prominent so I bet our education will be less about teaching obedience.
