Larry I think we are advocating the same type of program, but I know you teach lower grade levels, so I have not gone back that far. I am a big proponent of splitting the academic track when kids reach a certain age. Vocational and academic. I think once kids hit 15-16 they need to take a test developed by the school district that more or less pushes them into either continued academic courses of study or vocational courses. Students now are being told they must be "college ready" even though only 25% or so will ever complete a college education. We would be saving ourselves a lot of time, energy and money by allowing kids to have choices. We need people who can operate heavy equipment, plumbers, electricians, masons, and many other building trades, or manufacturing trades that have long left the high schools in lieu of getting students college ready. Students would stay in school longer, and I think the dropout rate would actually go down if students were getting training in something they could use. Our administration is somewhat getting this and we are going to offer more classes next year that address some of these issues. But the question still remains, how do we pay for it?
