Should we consider a “China-like” education system?

The State of Ohio is facing an $8 billion budget deficit and the 613 public school districts have been advised to expect a 10-20 per cent budget cut in the next two years. We have a shrinking job market, high unemployment, and no real job opportunities even for those having a high school diploma. Geoffrey Canada made mention of this in his speech at the University of Dayton. Many of our public high schools are laboring to graduate children that do not really want to be there pursuing an academic degree. Let us consider a system in which children have mandatory education through the eighth grade and then are tested to determine whether they follow an academic path to high school or a vocationally oriented path through a vocational program. This will meet the needs of both groups and free-up our high schools to educate the academically inclined to meet their college aspirations and goals. No more need for programs to “handle” the high school students not academically oriented, no more dealing with student disruptions or academic rebellion. The high schools will be inhabited by the students that truly want to be there and the others will be perusing vocational licenses or certification per their ability and talent. Isn’t that a win - win scenario?
