Top high schools 'enrolling too many students'

Post by PeteC » Sat Mar 25, 2017 7:41 am

If I wasn't reading this I wouldn't believe it. Taking the article at face value you can be assured that many good students with great potential will be swept up into this vacuum cleaner and end up in welding class or circuit board assembly instead of physics. Do they even know how to recognize, direct and nurture student potential? Pete

40 or more students per class has been common practice in the US since the 70s.

Vocational training at the high school level has all but been eliminated. If you want to learn how to work with your hands, you have to pay for a private trade school, after you have graduated from high school.
