AP-NORC poll: Many youths say high school diploma is enough
Although most young Americans believe in the value of higher education, many still consider a high school diploma alone to be enough for success, according to a survey of teens and young adults by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The findings alarm some experts who say young Americans don't seem to be getting the message that college pays off. Federal labor data shows a wide earnings gap between Americans who do and do not have a college degree, and unemployment rates are far lower for those with a bachelor's or master's degree.

The Dec. 12 election was called to break the deadlock over Brexit, more than three years after the country voted narrowly in favor of leaving the EU in a 2016 referendum.

The Conservatives lead Labour by 10-17 percentage points, four polls late on Saturday showed.

Johnson failed to get his deal approved by parliament ahead of a Oct. 31 Brexit deadline in part due to a rebellion by some of his own lawmakers over the speed at which he proposed to push through the legislation.
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Johnson said all Conservative election candidates had pledged to vote for his Brexit deal in parliament. The Mail on Sunday reported Johnson plans a Brexit debate in parliament on Dec. 23 if he wins.
"If we get a majority Conservative government we can deliver and there will be no more wrangling or dither or delay," Johnson told the Sunday Telegraph.
Asked about whether Labour would continue freedom of movement after Brexit, party leader Corbyn told BBC TV there would be "a great deal of movement" but the detail of their planned immigration policy would be in the election manifesto.
Corbyn also said he would not form a coalition government if his party fails to secure a majority in parliament.
Asked about possible demands for a Scottish independence referendum in return for the support of the Scottish National Party (SNP) if Labour is short of a majority, Corbyn told BBC TV: "We are not doing deals with anybody."
"We are not forming coalition governments, we will put forward the program on which we will have been elected," he said. "The SNP will have a choice, do they want to put Boris Johnson back in ... or are they going to say a Labour government will deliver for Scotland."
