Suggested Daily Topic

The daily topic for today is:

Should High Schools Do More to Prepare You for Careers?

In case you don't know who I am here is my intro post from way back:

BunnyPuncher Don’t worry your bunnies are “fairly” safe!

Story of an honest Steemian. Honesty in today's world it still exists!!


For most students, schools at every level should concentrate on transferable skills. A major in Italian Renaissance Literature has very little practical use, but, done correctly, can create transferable skills: research, critical thinking, contextual understanding, etc. Not everyone is cut out for cognitively demanding jobs, so vocational programs and apprenticeships should be available for them. This includes those who greatly prefer working with their hands.

Yes, they should by including more CTE in their curriculum including computer science.

More? Beyond pushing college as the only viable, absolute choice -yeah. College is NOT the end-all-be-all answer to a career. It IS the way to unforgivable, oppressive debt (and a shot at work if you manage to snag an employer's eye somewhere along the way) It seems like so many educational systems these days just want to push a learner into a debt system, rather than teach them how to earn a living. Not everything you would call a "job" has to be learned from a college tuition program.

Yes. They can give more introductory courses to health and tech fields where there is a need for skilled people. These could stimulate interest in the HS students so they can continue to take courses in that field.

It doesn't have to be geared only to a 4 year college. There are 2 year programs that can be taken with certificates given out upon completion.

I'd go with a #Yes,high school should really prepare someone for a career because most people do not have the opportunity of an higher level of education cause of some reasons mostly financial reasons.
I'd suggest that high school should:

  • have some technical courses to be offered
  • Should also offer some trade courses such as fisheries,animal handling, fashion designing, make-up courses etc

In case of those who have opportunity of an higher institution of education, high schools can help in building the students on there career by

  • taken them on field trip
  • doing more of practicals than just theory classes on each career opportunity
  • Taking career lesson to help prepare for the future.

Thanks for taking time to write this detailed answer. You're a good stemian :)

Yes, Multiple choice exams are a Joke!!!! In Germany, you gotta write an analysis for example in english class and that every exam!

Lectures are a process to develop the abilities that have been obtained in high school

Graduates of bachelor are of course viewed better in society than those who are not in college. That's why it's important to go to college.

I am definitely one of those who thinks that the problem is not the highschool. everything will always depend on the student. It is not the fault of the study house if someone is not well prepared

The never-ending spirit is always needed so we do not decide to stop and collapse in the middle of the road.

The never-ending spirit is always needed so we do not decide to stop and collapse in the middle of the road.

For me it's a yes,because it is a perfect molding ground for us to be prepare on what career are we in the future but the decision is up to us whether what kind of person we want us to be.
But Aun still has its Pro and its Cons

Maybe not. Definitely not. Because there are lots lackings in our high school progress. Lots of corruption with high charge school fees. In poor families they are unable to bear their educational expense. Thats why many brilliant student not got the chance of good and effective education

The wise learn when they can. Fools learn when they have to

I believe this is a bit of a moot point until teachers start getting paid what they deserve. Yes, the ideal would be to better prepare our young adults for the outside world but there is always going to be someone demanding where the money is going to come from. All the while, teachers may get some recognition and accolades but it's mostly just for show. Cut useless military spending and stop allowing our elected officials to give themselves raises on a whim and truly start investing in our youth.

Personally, I think more trade skill classes and introductory courses to business, science, and arts of all kinds should be offered. Let the young adults see what they may show an aptitude for and might be willing to work harder to achieve.

In the end though, unless we are willing to follow through with the funds and work towards making sure all students are afforded the same opportunities regardless of income, race, sex, and cultural background, I believe nothing of substance will get done.

Education is the deadliest weapon in the world, because with education, you can change the world

If you educate a man, then a man will be educated. But if you educate a woman, a generation will be educated

YES! If only I could turn back the time, I definitely want to study high school to a school where they have so much to offer.

When I was in college, I envied those classmates of mine who came from a prestigious school in which the students there are named as The Country's Scholar. There's this one classmate of mine who happened to be my boyfriend, who always says, we've done that in High School, I already know that since High School. Then, he would teach us those who are foreign to that device or instruments and some other kinds of stuff.

We took the course Electronics and Communications Engineering. I don't have any idea

  • why does 1 + 1 = 0
  • what is NAND, OR, AND,
  • how to solve RLC circuit
  • how to use and read multitester

well, you can say I know nothing at all when I step into college, except for solving differential equations.

In our high school, math was given a higher privilege than science and technology. And that explains why I was dumbfounded in that area.

Also, my boyfriend told me that they were given a choice like if they want to become a doctor, nurse, or anything that is in medical world, then they can choose an advance subject that involves more of the science. If you want to become an engineer than they can choose the advance subject that is more on mathematics and statistics.

Yes, for me that it's an obligation, they must prepare us better

Yes, for me that it's
An obligation, they must
Prepare us better

Education is the ticket to the future. Tomorrow belongs to those who prepare themselves from today

How about a little insight as to what a career is?
What it means to be self-employed, or in a partnership?
This is too broad a topic... makes me angry to think about it.

So yeah, they could do more - so much more it makes me sick.


Thou thinkest of yourself as a sheer piece of matter, wherein within you is the unlimited power

Learning how to learn is one of the most valuable tools we can give to young people in my view.

The function of the education system is to educate, therefore they should always put their best effort to send students as prepared as possible to higher education, send students with the least amount of knowledge gaps and that warrants a review of the curriculum of studies.

Learning is not the only purpose of our life. But if that's all we are not able to overcome, then what we will achieve

Should high schools do more to prepare you for careers?
On the one hand yes, since that would help our children to be prepared for college and the young people have more capacity to learn faster than when they are 21

While it's good to prepare students for careers, high schools should also better prepare students for life outside the classroom. Not everyone is going to want a career after school, nor will it be suitable for everyone. So, rather than preparing students for one kind of successful life (the one where they become successful career people), high schools should prepare them for other kinds of success.

That's why aside from teaching career-oriented skills, high school should be the place where we teach students the soft skills that will improve their communication, work ethic, and financial readiness. High school is also the best place for them to learn how to be responsible, flexible, respectful, and at the same time, professional individuals.

Live as if you died tomorrow. Learn as you live forever

Education is at the same level as sports that enable everyone to compete

Learning is not obtained by chance. He must be sought with eagerness and listened diligently

If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library

If you educate a man, then a man will be educated. But if you educate a woman, a generation will be educated

One who stops studying is an elderly person, even though he is still a teenager. One who never stops learning, forever becomes a youth

If you do not pursue what you want, then you will not get it. If you do not ask then the answer is no. If you do not move forward, you will remain in the same place

If you educate a man, then become an educated man. But if you educate a woman, a generation will be educated

Learning is not obtained by chance. He must be sought with passion and listened diligently

Education is not a process for lighting an empty container. But the education of a process to light a fire

School and college do not teach us what to think about in this life. They teach us logical, analytical and practical ways of thinking.

Thinking is the most difficult activity ever. Therefore, few people will do it

If one travels for the purpose of seeking knowledge, then God will make his journey as a journey to heaven

Learning is not derived from mere coincidence. He must be sought with passion and listened diligently

If you do not pursue what you want, then you will not get it. If you do not ask, then the answer is no. If you do not move forward, you will continue to be in the same place

I do not think that High Schools should prepare people for careers The real question in my sense should be "Is the notion of career still actual?".
Indeed, a career can only be made when you stay and evolve within the same company until you reach your rent.
If you always need to change the firm and plans I do not think one can talk of career.
High Schools should most likely prepare the becoming graduates to run money wisely by using the different tools available in the economic system in order to protect them from giving too much money to the state and create a possibility to let money work for them.
A preparation would consist to get the young people to get ready to stay in the rat-race until the end and pay more money for the states than using it to live the life they want.

Thinking is the hardest activity ever. Therefore few do it

In these competitions, the country of origin of each one must be taken into account. For example, education in my country Venezuela is getting worse. Teachers and teachers with a high degree of instruction have left the country, and those who do not want to work for what little they are paid. So I believe that education in my country unfortunately has no solution until there is a change of government.

Religion without knowledge is blind. Science without religion is paralyzed

The goal of learning is to keep growing. Reason is not the same as the body, reason keeps growing as long as we live

Give a man a bowl of rice and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man to take care of rice and you will give him food for life

Education: Be able to distinguish between what you know and what is not. Know where to go to find out what you need to know, and find out how to use the information once you get it.

What are the benefits of high school education if you can not remember it when needed later?

no stopping word in science. Great people will never stop, if you stop, then you are not a great person.

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing patience or confidence

The real struggle is not between East and West, or capitalism and communism, but between education and propaganda

Perhaps the most fundamental value of liberal education is to make life more interesting. This allows you to think of things that do not happen to those who are not learning.

Humans need to learn, and learn need a teacher. Teachers also need knowledge. That's education.

When a man opens the door of the school, it means he has closed the prison

As far as the intention of education is to train the child to call it is a millstone stone around his neck.

In the first place, God created ignorance. That's for practice. Then he made the universe to study.

Education remains educationWe have to learn anything, then decide which we will followKarena education is not a problem black or white, west or east, education is human itself

My mother says I should always be tolerant of people who do not learn but understand many things. That some people can not go to school is more educated and more intelligent than a lecturer.

The things I want to know are those in the books, my best friend is the one who will give me a book I have not read.

If you want a degree, go to college. But if you want knowledge, go to the library

Unfortunately no . The Education system is messed up and doesn't focus on provide the knowledge rather it tries to carry forward the information . I don't know about other countries but the education system here hasn't changed for so long and so are the syllabus , its completely outdated.

Follow Trump's lead: Arm both students and Teachers...ALL OF THEM... It will make School a safer place. Every Kid starting from age 4 should carry full automatic weapons. Good for the kids' future.... 15,000 deaths per year ain't enough. Damn you idiots. The more guns the better

Yes. Of course, even later they still need to go for university. But not prepare for the intelligence part only. They need mental and attitudes too. Because that combination can give them a better job.

Someone was educated because he was human, and not because he made shoes, bags, and pins.

First, they underestimate you. Second, they laugh at you. Third, they challenge you. Finally you win

the more you share your knowledge, the more it increases And if you never share it, then it may disappear.

The important people are too busy educating the youth to be able to teach them anything.

when the world becomes chaoticThe most necessary is the good people who are knowledgeable. And the most prominent activity is to train someone to become knowledgeable.

Education is a ticket for the future. Tomorrow for the people who have prepared themselves today

Career training already has a small section of the American educational system,. With campuses around the nation from a multitude of different schools and different career fields. These are usually bought a paid for through loans made by the government and traditional vampire banks that will bleed you dry, well into mid life for most .So my thought would no on today's topic. American public high school barely teaches most of these kids how to read and write or use math beyond the ability to fill out an application in the fast food industry. If they really wanted to prepare these kids for the world, they would teach these kids how to think for themselves and how do simple everyday mundane tasks like filling out a financial ledger, or sew and clean there clothes or maybe how to cook their own food. Beyond the bastardized curriculum they should prepare the kids to be able to take care of themselves without having to depend on parents or handouts . Teach them to think for themselves and give them a equal educational chance for entry into a good university where they can learn all the skills they will need for a chosen career.I apologize for the mini rant.

The true knowledge is not measured by how much you memorize and how much you are able to explain. But the true knowledge is expression and piety

School and college do not teach what to think about in life. They teach logical, analytical, and practical ways of thinking

Enhanced knowledge of learning, trust with debate, skill with practice, and love with affection

It's good to celebrate success. But more important is to take lessons from failure

Science is obtained from the reading tongue and the intellectual thinking

As many of you read, the more you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will visit

Education is an amazing thing, but also to remember from time to time that no one is worthy to know about what can be taught.

Correct education to create inequality, inequality of individuality, inequality of success, inequality of genius.

Yes! DO MORE, but fewer projects and examinations.

Do more reporting, oral defence, and actual assessment.

I guess it depends on the student how they will learn.
It's not about the school or year level or even the curriculum of the school. It's always on how eager the student wants to learn.

I think they should be given more opportunities and more guidance and mentors to see what they really want, what they are passionate about and to help them decide what they want to become. They should have more chances to explore what interests them.

Not everything does There are certain things like maths that you need to learn. But then you could have a calculator as-well. Whats the point of history? To teach people about the past when will that ever come up in your job. Science? ... Should be optional for students that want to be a scientists. But others don't so why should we have to learn it. My teacher is convinced that she should only teach what will make a difference in life. The only time she dosent is when she has to.

If one travels for the purpose of seeking knowledge, then God will make his journey as a journey to heaven.

Someone who stops studying is an elderly person, even though he is still a teenager. A person who never stops learning will forever be a youth

Education is the most deadly weapon in the world, because with it you can change the world

Education is the most deadly weapon in the world, therefore, you are able to change the world

Learning is not the only purpose of life. But if that just can not, then what will we achieve

Religion without knowledge is blind. And science without religion is paralyzed

Think of yourself as a piece of matter? Whereas in you are stored unlimited power

I respect the faith, but there is no doubt that what makes you great is education.

A person with enough insight to acknowledge his shortcomings is the person closest to perfection.
