Does the U.S. high school educational system need to be updated...?

In the way it is structured; or the classes they offer. Personally, I'd like to see one year of Anatomy & Physiology added; and one year of Legal/Law training. And perhaps more part-time school part-time work for those who know exactly what they want to do.

    I'd rather they just promise to effectively teach basic reading and writing skills. The so called "social promotions" handed out are producing functionally illiterate high school grads. Anatomy and physiology would be nice for those who want to go into medical fields but the baseline for being a voter used to be having some clue about how government works. So maybe be should go back to that. The number of "educated" people who just realized in 2016 what the Electoral College is was stunning.

    In a big way. Stop holding back public schools. It needs to stop. America is  stifling kids we are behind in the world.
