After teaching high school students for 3 years, it was obvious that we are educating students who don’t want to be at school. It made me question why we spend so much money at a cookie cutter education system. No, we’re not all the same and we’re not all going to attend a four year university.
I believe more emphasis should be on technical programs to provide more alternative career pathways to meet the needs of these students and the workforce.
Check out how this school in Arizona is offering specialized training in forty different careers.
Why spend money on students who do not want to be there? Why not develop more programs such as this that will motivate the students to attend school and provide jobs for the workforce. This is a win/win….what do you think?
