Students can’t graduate unless they get accepted into college
A high school in Oregon wants to add an additional requirement to its graduation policy.
Corbett High School’s principal wants to mandate that each student apply for and get accepted into a college or trade school before walking across the stage.
The principal of Corbett High School says the students wouldn’t have to follow through and attend the school – he simply wants this to be a lesson in the application process. If a student can’t afford any application fees, the school has grants that will cover the cost.
If approved, the new requirement would go into effect in 2017. The school board will hold a final vote on the rule in two months and it is expected to pass.
What do you think about this requirement? Should more schools adopt this policy?
Would acceptance into college or a trade school prove that students were better prepared or educated?
