Magnus: MycroftHolmes: Dr Jack Badofsky: pueblonative: tricycleracer: An Oregon school district wants to set a new graduation requirement for students to get their diplomas.
Students would be required to get accepted to a college or trade school.

Let's keep reading!

The principal of Corbett High School says the students wouldn't have to follow through and attend the school - he simply wants this to be a lesson in the application process.

Going through an application process is a good life lesson.  Best case, a student who thinks "I'll never get into college" gets accepted and their life changes for the better.

If a student can't afford any application fees, the school has grants that will cover the cost.

Well, that removes any financial hurdles.


So why is this stupid?

Uh, let's say you want to go to the military after high school?

Or, if you plan on attending a trade school, or go directly not apprenticeship, start a business, join an existing family business, start a band, ....

Again, how does applying to college prevent any of those actions?

How does applying to college add any value to the individual who has no intention on going to college?


Don't you know that the college application process is one of the most rigorous tasks a person can ever perform?  I mean, it's not just all of the paperwork and writing essays about yourself, but the physical endurance test is a killer.

Apply at West Point, then.

Why?

Because West Point is the military...stupid.


But why would you want to be a skilled member of the military when you have the option of being a grunt on the front lines?

Launch Code: Instead of filling out applications for college, the school should make sure the students can properly fill out applications with local fast food establishments. 2 years of advanced high school is not a requirement to wear a paper hat. However, in 2 years a real go getter could find his/herself in line for that assistant to the asistant night manager position.


It should be law that anyone who seriously suggests fast food as a viable job choice should be sentenced to a year working fast food, lengthier punishments for repeat offenders.

Since there are colleges that will admit literally anyone who has completed high school, I don't think this will be much of a challenge. It cost a bunch of students application fees and a bunch of time and frustration, though.
