While I understand the need to level the playing field for all high school students to enter a higher level of education, but eliminating entrance standards and making it subjective seems counterproductive to the mission of the institution.
Wouldn’t it be more helpful to set goals for these students and fix the current system that is letting them down. It’s not like this a new problem, the educational system has been letting students down for years, with the aid parents who don’t give a hoot and demographics where education isn’t stressed.
Considering California Budgeted almost $18,000.00 per K – 12 Student. National numbers per census bureau. https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2021/public-school-spending-per-pupil.html
Maybe instead of being progressive, let’s actual change the curriculum to useful skills to change the never ending cycle.
