The paper presents an examination of current failures in U.S. high school curricula. It provides suggestions of how these curricula could be improved to help high school students after graduation gain better jobs and education and to save our future.

From the Paper:

"A study by the Education Trust found that fewer than half of high school students who pursue secondary education have completed a full college-preparatory program. This could be one reason for those poor numbers. Additionally, it was found that overworked guidance counselors typically don't have the time to help all students choose their courses wisely. Finally, the study confirmed that a lack of alignment between the high school curriculum and the kind of knowledge and skills required for success in both the workplace and the postsecondary system exists, contributing heavily to the problem."
