Why don't we implement duel education to fix our broken system of public education?


We would actually spend less money training students in a vocational and college bound setting. Dual education has worked in many countries and is one of the reasons why Americas educational system falters when compared to countries like Japan(who have dual education). Why do we spend billions on state and federal testing when we could invest that money in giving children the proper skill sets to find employment post HIGH SCHOOL graduation? With a 75% HS graduation rate, our country boast a lousy 29% post education rate (4 year degree or better). It's absurd given the money we spend.

    I think what strikes me as odd is how much either party complains about the educational system as a whole. Yet, federal funding makes up such a minority of the funding theses ISDs receive. The actual states have more power and do nothing but gripe.

    You are aware that No Child left behind is a Republican based policy? You are also aware that curriculum is developed at a state level, and red states test just as much and in some cases more than blue? It's not a liberal thing.

    States have majority rule over the educational system. Seems no matter the party, there is this push for 'no kid left behind' and 'general education for all. Problem is not everyone is meant for college and we leave the gifted behind.
