A lot of kids go to high school for 5 years.  They're called idiots.

profplump: But throughout human history we've been much more likely to make important the things we know how to measure than to learn to measure the things that are important.

umad: Ego edo infantia cattus: drop team sports all together

Surely it would be good for our kids to get even less exercise than they do currently. What could possibly go wrong? We should cut P.E. and recess too.

Especially seeing as team sports don't really take away from any class time.   Over my high school career I played 6 different varsity sports.

And I could throw a football over those mountains.

LeroyBourne: Keeve: Keeve: A lot of people take 7 years to graduate.

That would have made a little more sense with the Tommy Boy scene I tried to attach.

No no.  In my head I went right there and was gonna finish it, but no need now.


//gah...  sorry... I couldn't hold it in any longer...

umad: rubi_con_man: xynix: The problem isn't how many years but what type of content is being learned. When you dumb down the curriculum to meet the lowest common student you're essentially wasting the time of the other 75%. As long as they pass those tests though the school leadership can get their bonuses!

In many many western school systems they *kick out* the kids at 15, and only the smart 'half' get to take the last three years, ensuring that they go at a REAL speed and don't squander dollars. The lower half gets to go to trade and art schools, which does very well for many of them (Pink Floyd met at one such school, David Bowie attended one too).

I wonder what would happen if they had to 'remove' the bottom-performing 20% of students every year in June, starting at age 8th grade? at the start of ninth grade, you're have (instead of 100 inductees at 8th grade) 80 students. At the start of 10th grade, 64. At the start of 11th, you'd have 52 students.

We don't need to kick them out. We just need to bring back the tard classes for the dumb kids. They can do crafts for participation ribbons while the smart kids actually learn.

Why not have two schools?  One for the college track kids, and one for trade track kids?  The tards can do their crafts at home.

The author of TFA just graduated from high school.  She's suffering separation anxiety, just like her  first day in kindergarten.

She'll get over it when she discovers frat parties.

They already have a 5th year of high school. It's called the 1st year of college.

AgentKGB: Does Ontario still have Grade 13?

No, not for many years now.

CSB: I was actually in the final year of Grade 13 in Ontario. I turned out ok. It was nice being able to legally drink the first day of university.
