In the 2.24.14 issue of Time, Rana Foroohar lauds the idea of extending high school by two years, after which one would graduate with an Associate degree.
Extend high school by two years in lieu of college? I did some research to assess local students’ opinions about the proposal. Jocks and cheerleaders loved the idea. Nerds and shop kids abhorred it. One band member threw his trombone to the ground to express his contempt for the concept of “being in this fucking place one more second than I have to!” An official spokesperson for the partying crowd commented, “But, like, there will still be keggers and hook-ups, right? I mean, I just got this totally awesome Floyd poster that glows under a black light. You’ve gotta’ see it, man. Where would I hang it up?”
