Stop educating every child as if they are going to college

Clearly, not everyone is willing and/or able to attend college, let alone graduate. So why prepare every child for college?


By not properly preparing those children for their life after high school we are setting them up for failure, and putting enormous strain on the economy.


We would be much better off if we prepared them for the jobs they are more likely to have, thereby making them productive contributors to society rather than a drain via social programs.
