I believe that high school should start at the 8th grade and go to the 12th grade. i also with that believe that kids in those grades should go to a bigger school that say holds 1500 kids and be there from september first to june first. of course you would come home for big holidays and be able to write home and all that.
I think this argument is kind of ridiculous only because if you send kids from 8th grade to 12th grade in a high school and hold them from their families for X month to X month that is basically a short term boarding school. Which is completely stupid because you are depriving them from their family every year and they only get to see each other for a good three months.
Letters won't bring a lot of warmth to their hearts if thats the solution you put up there to counter depriving them from their loved ones. Also this thing already exists. It's called boarding school.
I get that, that is why the kids and their parents would have the option as to whether they attend this school or just a regular public school. In my expeirence with schooling my parents have made my high school expeirence a bit to controlled. also, i think you would learn more with being stuck in the place you were sent to learn.
You would not learn more when you are stuck in the school you were sent to learn. You would probably learn just as much as you did when you are in regular high school. Also I don't know about you but throwing me into a school where I couldn't buy anything, couldn't get money, couldn't go to movies with friends and all of that doesn't sound fun. You won't be able to do anything besides homework and the occasional field trip which is really boring and repetitive. Have you also thought about how this might be funded? The education system is working ok for now. And I know this will be expensive and the governments probably not ready for a new way of doing things school department wise. You aren't free at this kind of school to do really anything. You won't have an enjoyable teenage experience.
yes, i did leave quite a bit open didn't I? well, of course you'd have to pay for schooling and all that. plus, there should be ways to give students some free time to do as they please. so, maybe having the school in a some what less populated area but still some where where they can like you said see movies and buy stuff. I do agree that are current education system is doing great and that society as a whole probably wouldn't be ready for a new kind of schooling, however no one is really ever ready for change in general big or small yet most of the time change that we worry about tends to turn out good.
