That is the streotype, but your are probably misinformed as to the type of residents moving into large developments like this:

New homes for sale

And there are more where this came from, especially towards Mount Washington, which is merely an extension of the Fern Creek/Glenmary sprawlbelt that developed south of I-265 and Bardstown Road in the last 10 years. College attainment levels are lower for several reasons, but many of the redisents are older tradesman or workers at Ford plants or UPS which earn nice salaries in excess of 40-50k per year without a college degree. The area has good home ownership and many of teh residents have a good disposable income for this reason. In fact, a local development group is about to target the untapped buying buyer of south suburban Louisville and Bullitt County in a new lifestyle center in Okolona that should be similar to the Summit in NE Louisville:

Stores proposed near Jefferson Mall


Bullit now has its own hospital and ER and is adding a permanant community college soon. I would expect major big box retail (Walmart, Target, Dicks, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc) at the Shepherdsville interchange to open in the next five years with the new spur the city has built near city hall, and the county population rapidly approaching 100,000.

I certainly don't argue facts, and never did. However, your sterotype of it being all trailer parks is just flat wrong and misleading. There are very nice areas, golf course communities, and homes in subdivisions starting at 300k or more.

I also think there is some truth to my argument as to why the people with bachelor's is low in Bullit. The theory is that many of the people in Bullit are already skilled tradesman who can earn decent wages without a bachelor's like Ford assembly plant workers. This is not excusing the unacceptably low rate of college attainment, especially for such a large metro area. In Louisville, for example the rate is closer to 27% and predicted to rise over 30% at the next census and that is with the heavily poverty infested west end weighing down the stats.

My wife and I moved from fancy St.Mathews to Shepherdsville 7 years ago.
I love the people here. The Police are wonderful, diligent, hard working. All of our roads tend to be traffic free in comparison to Mt.Washington and surrounding cities.
We have a Kroger, a Lowe's, Ace Hardware, soon we will have a Target.
We have Zappos Shoe Company. We also boast the largest indoor Flea Market in the World!!!!! Its great!!!!
Shepherdsville has the longest Go-Cart Track in the USA!!!!
Our schools are top notch, and many are new. We have a huge beautiful Golf Course with very expensive homes surrounding them. Anyone can play golf, no need to buy an expensive membership.
Our crime is very low, basic theft, drugs, however I would feel safe walking anywhere in this town at any giving time.
We have plenty of small stores to shop, Dollar General, Cato's, Feeder Supply, Big Lots, however I look forward to more stores coming in the future
Our Companies we have attracted in the last couple of years are
Johnson & Johnson, Gordan's Food.
Shepherdsville is 20 minutes to Louisville or Elizabethtown.
We need more sit down restaurants, and we need to work on the inner city roads.
Whether you want to live in a restricted neighborhood, or a country home surrounded by beautiful land, then in my opinion, Shepherdsville is the place to be.
