"Public education should include 2 years after the 12th grade for both vocational and academic education."
Linda, this is an excellent suggestion. Unfortunately, most kids who graduate from high school today cannot solve simple math problems, and many of them read at the sixth or eighth grade level. These people will work in the fast food sector or become office janitors all their lives if all they have is a substandard education!
For starters, children that have not passed the basic for that class level should not be passed onto the next grade. Comprehension is a lost teaching skill it seams. I could be wrong, but my friends (teachers) tell me they are required to pass the student. That is totally stupid.
I think every child should be required to go to preschool at age 4. Preshcool should be highly structured with social,lots of physical, some academics, nutrition and rest.
School should be 12 months, with vacations throughout the year.
Public education should include 2 years after 12th grade for both vocational and academic education.
Finally, college's financing should be reviewed and costs cut. As they receive so much government (peoples) money, the review should be completed by an outside accounting firm. (that cannot be bought off)
