For the record, the NC House is GOP Majority and the “Einsteins” that are sponsoring the bill are also Republicans.

With that said, WTF?  Could this really pass?

What they need to do is restructure the entire school system to offer a current, useful curriculum that will prepare students for the workforce and careers instead of basic outdated core classes.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

NC Senate also discussing multi billion dollar bond to revamp schools, help universities, and get community colleges going towards jobs of tomorrow. I went to public schools in NC in 80’s and early 90’s. It was good then, but almost every school in the country could use an influx to get students ready for the future. Trade schools, tech schools, university, NC has a great system, and can make it better.

My god that’s dumb.  We teach so many stupid thing that it really could use a restructuring.  High school really isn’t very hard but we don’t do a good job or keeping most kids engaged.  If we could restructure to things they like but will also help them with jobs in the future it should improve grades and the workforce.
