To add the following statement to the state school code: “It is the role of parents and legal guardians and pupils to determine the best postsecondary educational opportunity to fit . . . the individual pupil. All postsecondary educational opportunities, including internships, apprenticeships, 2-year degrees, 4-year degrees, and advanced degrees should be considered depending on the career sought by the pupil.” In other words, to explicitly recognize in statute that college is not for everyone.
