The government is spending money on a pointless concept that teenagers can learn from high school. Guess what, it doesn't work that way.
The only thing that teenagers learn from high school is how to forge friendships and how to avoid being bullied.
Instead of teenagers going to high school, they should go straight to college or university. In University, there will a majority of smart and open-minded people. There will also be more people who will accept you for who you are.
Let's keep going.
High school education:
Mathematics: algebra, pre-calculus, trigonometry, sequences and series--all of which you can easily learn from a book. Thus, you should just go to college to learn this.
Physics: dynamics, kinematics, energy, momentum, etc--again, easy to learn from a book. The formulas are in the book--learn the formulas and your exam will be easy.
Chemistry: molecular structures, moles, equilibrium--way too easy.
Biology: plant diagrams, animal diagrams, male and female reproductive systems--work on your memorization skills and you'll receive and A, easily.
Information Technology: basic HTML, Java, C++, VB, adobe photoshop--honestly, do I even need to note how easy this is?
English: essays, analyzing poetry, writing poetry and reading--too easy. I learned most of my English from writing dozens of essays. Teenagers can do the same before the transition from elementary school to college.
Okay, I outlined a few of the major academic school subjects that you learn in high school. My point? Building a high school is pointless and is a big waste of money. I think society is too judgemental. They completely underestimate the mind of a teenager in development. That's why I propose a new plan--skip high school and go straight to college or university. A social life can easily be achieved over time while at university or college.
High schools are pointless. Students should go from elementary school to college or university because you learn far more and the government doesn't have to waste money on non-profit organizations (high schools) that keep sucking up funds.
Hah, eat that. That's my quick solution to the current economy.
