High schools need to weld academics with practical skills

When students leave high school, do they have skills that will help them in real-life situations?

hs-skillsI’d like to propose a sweeping overhaul of the United States public education system effective immediately.

This may seem overblown, given that I’m proposing it in response to a bill from Pep Boys that I resent having to pay. The air conditioning in my car stopped working this week and the gentleman said I needed a new compressor, the procurement of which set me back $1,286.

It’s probably legitimate, but I wish I knew for sure. I wish I knew what a compressor looks like or what it does or how complicated, expensive and time-consuming it is to replace.
