History 442 Essay

659 words - 3 pages

Todays comment on teacher’s objectives of getting students college and career ready was an interesting one at that. I understand that this is the ideal goal of educators and I feel that educators are getting students college ready, but they are not getting students career ready. A statistic I found from the U.S. Department of Labor said that approximately 7 out of 10 students graduating from high school would be attending college in the fall. That means that approximately 3 out of 10 students would be entering the workforce. In my opinion if schools want to get students college and career ready then there should be an area in the curriculum that expects students to gain at least one skill before they graduate with a diploma. What I mean by a skill is either an expertise in a health occupations skill, cooking, carpentry or even automotive. There are 3 out of 10 students that will be immediately entering the workforce and if they had a vocational skill in something, then they would at least have a little guidance in the beginning. At the vocational school in my district, some students received their CNA certificate, welding certificate and even information technology certificates. All of these certificates have some value in them. Sadly, I could not have participated in the vocational programs, since I had to take college prep classes my final two years of high school and there is an all day commitment to attending the vocational schools. I believe that these vocational skill opportunities need to be integrated into the schooling system, so all students can have an opportunity to participate in them. For four years I had learning lab every day from 1:00 P.M.-2:25 P.M., so that means throughout my high school career I had approximately 991 hours in which I could have used to gain a certificate in something. If the government wants to create students that are college...
