    Donna,

    Even while checking off all the requirements, what students really need is thinking skills and study skills. Unfortunately for whatever reason, students can go through the process and still not be prepared for college. I’m still a Latin proponent as it prepares the student to learn any other foreign language as well as reinforces English grammar.

    Our educational system is really good at regurgitation. Learn this and spit it back out on the test. We need to go beyond that. I’ve also seen the beauty of using different curricula. It’s easy to use one publisher. Everyone gets in the groove. Then when the student see information in a different format or said a little different, they are thrown for a loop!

    High school- start early- 8th grade for science and math. In 11th grade start dual credit and expose your student to the faster pace and the higher requirements.

    Lifetime learners- now that is something to aim for!
