End Adolescent Daycare February 23, 2010

Posted by federalist in Education.

I like this idea of using board exams after 10th grade to encourage excellent students to go to college. After all, public high school is primarily an adolescent daycare program. At best a good student spends his last two years taking “college-level” AP courses anyway; at worst he languishes in a system designed for mediocre and remedial students.

Even adolescents who can’t or won’t pursue a 4-year liberal arts degree would often be better served beginning more intensive and specific vocational programs before they reach adulthood.
