I am a middle school teacher and a lot of my kids do not know what they want to do when they get older. It is unfortunate but they should have an idea of what they want to do because they have to decide if they want to go to a free tech high school. Our tech high schools are really good and they teach things like nursing, steel trades, plumbing, carpentry, and even hair and cosmetology. I wanted to tell my kids that they have to pick a job soon or look at https://www.theplateman.net/replacement-number-plates/ because they could see the different things that people have done when they graduated from the trade school. I can usually tell which kids were and were not going to go to well in college. These are the kids that I worry about because they are usually not the ones that want to go to college but still have no idea what they want to do.
Even if a kid does not know what they want to do, they could still go to the high school and for the first year they try all of the different trades until they find out what they want to do. I think that this is good because if a kid does not like school, they will go and spend a few years learning something that they will always have the skills for. I think that this is great for the kids that know that they do not want to continue on until high school but they still have no idea what they want to to do in life. They will get to try different things and I think that this is one of the best things about the entire program, they get to find out about themselves and their passions.
