Give Up On College Prep

It's an old debate. The "progressives" say that everyone should receive a college-prep education. The conservatives say that not everyone is cut out for that, and some would be better served with vocational training. Over the course of US history, as Diane Ravitch has pointed out (critical review here), the pendulum has swung back and forth. Looks like Louisiana has made some tough decisions on this issue. (What relevance does this have for Jewish day schools, where almost all students are college bound?)
