This bill makes me think the government wants us stupid, after all stupid people are easier to rule. I don't want to sound paranoid, but how can we expect to maintain a high developed country if we disregard our children education? Would you trust to see a doctor who has only studied half than what he should've? Personally I won't be affected by their decision, at least not yet, I have graduated from high-school few years back and I am about to get my online nursing bachelors degree, but the next generation will have to suffer if this bill gets approved.

This is the 90s Bill Clinton, Marc Tucker School to Work revived.
This is part of the old School To Work, of Bill Clinton and Marc Tuckers of the 90s.By compressing four years into two (freshman and sophomore years), Tucker’s idea is to fast-track and minimize the high-school curriculum so that students do not receive in-depth instruction in World History, U. S. History, economics, government, higher math, the great classics of the world, and advanced science. students would be bereft of the knowledge-base needed to cope with the adult problems of the world and certainly would not make well-informed voters nor citizens. These students also would not have the flexibility and the knowledge-base to change vocations readily nor to get into college and be successful students. Students (encouraged by their naïve parents) who unknowingly succumb to Tucker’s devious plan would end up having a very shallow educational background and would be doomed to the career pathway they chose when young and immature.

I regret seeing this bill move forward. We should be encouraging the most from our children, not the minimum.
