Inadequate secondary education


Secondary schools are not preparing people to live in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Those students who do not go on to post-secondary education are not able to function effectively on the job, in the social sphere, or within new families. Many graduates of secondary schools are functionally illiterate. They do not have the skill require by the increasingly service oriented work place: interpersonal skills, teamwork skills, logical skills, problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills or the ability to learn. Many have no concept of social responsibility or rights.
