I can’t get over how accurate this is…
yep. and instead of helping kids plan for their future in high school. they pull names out of a hat to begrudgingly ‘teach’ the class. career planning isnt all about what makes the most money. its about whats out there and once finding subjects you like, you put a plan together for how you can get there. theres needs to be more fields available in high schools to see what people like to do and have classes to play around with ideas. instead of these basics and generic courses. i get that we need sciences and such, but that seemed to be the focus in my high school. a lot of our trades courses were cancelled due to ‘lack of interest”…at the time it was a 3 grade school cause it was new and was filling in the senior courses. my high school was a 8-12. we had no MECHANICS course…
fuck…this is a long drawn out concept and topic that really has no answers or guidance.
some days i really think about getting into teaching…but 8yrs later just to recite lessons to kids…and i just want to guide the future and give people options. all you hear is “what do you wanna do with your life?” iunno? ill figure it out later… what people dont understand is, later comes and goes and you just fall into whatever hole fits at the time.
if i could do it over again id look into more trades and what options there were. i dont regret my choices, but i think i could have done a lot more younger. i feel behind in a lot of my studies and learning…but i feel im on a track now
