Subject: RE: BS: New curricula in US schools?
A "student" should be given two years of high school.

If they have a reasonable aptitude for academics, they should go on to the second two years.

The rest should be transferred to trade schools where they learn carpentry, farm work, electronic asssembly, truck driving or other skills of their choice.

Both groups should be taught paractical skills including balancing a check book and filling out a Federal Tax form.
