The anticipated new record in 2008 will occur just three years before the first members of the Boomer generation reach the retirement age of 65. Already, there are signs of ;4 ml a an FREE i T) Ds U Jysft conflict between the two generations. In Arizona, for example, retirement communities are seeking de-annexation from school districts in order to avoid paying taxes for schools. "This is going to increase, because everybody in America has someone in their family who is old, getting older or about to retire," said Childers.

This new generation of high I school graduates, concentrated I along the southern rim of the na-1 tion, will be the most racially and ! ethnically diverse in the country's j history, the study said. - But the researchers warned ) that state and federal policy- makers are not adequately pre- paring for this population bulge. ' "Planning needs to be done now to accommodate these enor-j rnous changes," said Richard 1 Jonsen, executive director of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. "That planning doesn't seem to be go- ing on." "If we don't find ways to pro-1 vide quality post-secondary edu- cation and training" for this gen- eration, said Robin Etter Zuniga, i the study's chief investigator, ' "we're risking the creation of a i large underclass without the ; necessary skills and training to ; compete." i Instead, the education debate t at the federal level between the Clinton administration and Con- gress has focused primarily on ! national academic standards and j tax credits for parents. ' Complicating the picture, ed-j ucation experts warn, is the fact j that the nation's high schools will be graduating record numbers of j students at about the same time I that the first Boomers will be j reaching retirement age. j What is likely to occur, they i said, is a confrontation as the j swelling ranks of high school j graduates and aging Boomers j compete for government servic-1 es.' j "WeYe in for a real period of i Inter-generational conflict," said j John Childers, vice president for j government relations for the i College Board, which provides I services and research to high J schools and colleges.

This underscores the differences in the original Baby Boom generation and its "boomlet" successor. The boomer generation is 75 percent white, 11 percent black, 9 percent Hispanic and 4 percent Asian, Pacific Islander, American Indian or Native Alaskan. But the boomlet generation is 67 percent white, 15 percent black, 14 percent Hispanic and 5 percent Asian, Pacific Islander, American Indian or Native Alaskan.
