So sad that "critical thinking" is considered subversive! I disagree about your "advanced" section - I think those should absolutely be required, in addition to citizenship. For the younger kids, teaching social and emotional health as well.
Laura, I forgot to add sex education. It has been normal in the UK for decades and seems to have benefited individuals and society. At the very least it means fewer teenagers can make the excuse of ignorance.
Ain't that the truth! And how about some studies in critical reasoning and discernment. Teach the kids to question what they are told and think for themselves instead of absorbng propaganda like a sponge. And what's with taking phys ed out of school?
And the parents can afford to lose that much income?? I am sure employers would not be happy if they were forced to pay for it. I can hear the yells of "Communism" already.
Nice idea! @AlexK2009: It's sad that American companies are so unwilling to support policies/programs that strengthen families and education. Our social policies lag so far behind other nations, and we are suffering for it!
