The new structure must be done selectively by identifying schools based on known performance (Method of Excellence) for producing college and career ready students.
Colleges would now be for Vocational (Partner with K-12) and Graduate Studies.
This would reduce the strangle hold colleges have over students and parents (their so-called customers) in terms of value added service and costs that are driving our college grads to be in debt that will eventually be the next huge debt crisis that alters our country economies of scale from top to bottom.
I'm willing to bet around early 1900s there was a bold forward thinking leader who challenged the status quo when he/she challenged the current system of education by saying our children must go beyond elementary school and go to high school. The out-cry by traditionailst self absord thinkers must have cried out in range stating "It will destroy the make-up of our society" if kids are in school for 12 years. Wake-up it is time to move forward again and we all must be part of the movement.
