The role you assign to high school has traditionally been the one given to college in terms of self-discovery and pursuit of interests. This is because you are given a choice of curriculum in college and in High School, your choices are SEVERELY limited unless you go to some sort of specialized High School.
It's not a snack counter. It's a packaged meal that happens to have a lot of stuff in it, but the same stuff every day.
^So, first it’s vocational, now its specialized high school. I think I’ve been stressing on the point for the past two posts.
^Also, in order to get into college, you need do need a backup from high school.
High Schools don't teach leadership nor do they teach learning. Neither of those things can be taught in a classroom or from a book. As for writing, I'll grant you that point for now.
^Oh yes, leadership & learning skills are taught in high school. Very much indeed. I wouldn’t think of a better place - for scouting, camping, community service etc. to be done in a whole group with guidance, assistance, security & awards being arranged for it - than HS. And you do learn a lot from such experience.
If you re-read my initial argument, you would see that this was the only thing about high school I had no problem with. Stay on topic. My argument is that high school is nearly academically useless.
^And that is incorrect. High school is very academically useful. It sure is for all those people out there who could do with nothing but high school for a brighter, better future.
No, no they don't. If anything, they restrict thinking because everyone is focused on grades. Students learn in the manner they need to learn in order to get good grades in classes that don't matter, instead of learning the way that comes best to them and allows them to succeed in life. The merits of high school do not outweigh the fact that it makes kids waste many years of their lives that could be spent doing much more productive things.
^I don’t know what high school you went to, but I would’ve suggested transferring.
The kids who don't like to learn and who have that much difficulty with self-motivation tend to struggle through high-school one repeated year after the next.
^And going through high school is a much better option than staying at home, having no one to guide you the whole way through and eventually turning out very backward fallen in the society.
It's reality, but it isn't practicality.
^Just so you know, common sense applies to reality. Also, high school gives you practical skills in life.
If I tell you that I'll give you $10 for something you bought for 50 cents, then you benefit. If I gave you $10 to be my slave for 7 years, then there is no benefit.
The issue here isn't the benefit. It's the cost. High school can easily be redesigned to have all the benefits while avoiding a lot of the problems. A 4 year curriculum in High School can essentially be whittled down to 2 years, or less.
^I wouldn’t take the 10 bucks to begin with :p
^Well, that’s easier said than done. The example doesn’t really draw a parallel to your point, btw.
On this note, the DNA of a fruit fly is not compatible with that of a human. It's comparable, but not compatible.
Insect legs are also not an ingredient in candy bars. It's a contaminant that the FDA has a maximum percentage of. There are traces of disgusting things in ANYTHING that we eat.
It's ironic that two false facts were used to support an argument for the quality and significance of High School education.
^I wouldn’t blame high school just because I hit the wrong word in a mishap.
^The insect legs idea wasn’t taught in class, it was just a conversation a bunch of people had in the cafeteria and those people were, as stated before, unsure of it anyway.
^So, just imagine the number of false facts that people would’ve been actually taking into account if they hadn’t gone to high school. And thereby, the irony balances out.
