no because gym and basket weaving will only take them so far<br />
seriously whats needed is a heavy emphasis on math and english and very little in the way of throw away courses
Yep. As long as it's geared toward a profession then your studies in High School should be tailored to your future career or occupation. Then you would be well prepared for college.
Agreed!!! While we're at it throw away those letters with the numbers they are not supposed to be their!!! Revolt!!!
well they should make everyone take math & English, history and science courses. the rest should be offered as electives because not everyone can/wants to paint, run, or cook.
No. High school students need to learn about history and be exposed to Shakespreare, as well as other things.
1. The only things most of them would want to study would be easy/fun/dead-end subjects<br />
2. Exposing them to subjects they "think" they won't like is good for them. I got stuck in U.S. Government class my senior year and I dreaded it. I thought it was going to be a boring disaster. It ended up being my favorite class that year.
AGREE & your right you cant always choose the subject you want as some schools have columns where you choose one subject from each. Did when i was at school and my kids.
i think thats a good idea like after algerbra or whatever they should be taking classes that intrest them classes that could help them in a future career i know kids r lazy but maybe if they r into what they learn they will be better students maybe maybe not but i think its a good idea
they already kinda do....all the English and math is required to be anything you would go to collage for
I thought they already did?
AGREED!! but only until 11th grade, when they have a mayor understanding of math, english, etc.
