Should high school be extended to five years, is it good or bad?

No I don't think it should be extended because if it was meant to be 5 years it would have a long time ago. Plus that's what college is for. If you want more education after high school then you go to college. there's no point in extending it.

I think there should be an optional fifth year, not mandatory and not high school, to help students with finding jobs and practice their independent living skills. This way we have more teens looking for jobs and trying to make something of themselves instead of depending on drug-dealing as their monthly pay. I feel if we do this it will help a lot more teens to get into college and find good jobs.

It depends on the curriculum that a country uses in their educational system.

High school only recently switched from 5 years to 4 years in canada. Kinda messed with the university system, because suddenly students were coming in much less educated.
