High school is a social filter more than education. I don’t know anyone who is better off for it except TIAA/CREF and the casinos.
Everyone should be apprenticed by 14, and their employers or town/state should be paying for their advanced education based on consumption taxes.
School guidance counselors should all be in prison for fraud.
While eliminating academic grades, eliminate classes arranged by age and preschool. No kid should be forced into school before 9 yo. They need to go outside and talk to the world. The world needs it.
