I love P&N for their deep thought and intellectual debates but I also love bridging the gap between all parties (Democrats, Republicans, and Libertarians). That said, List ideas or solutions that should just be common sense with almost no debate. I know there are tons more and I'd like to get up to speed with some of your ideas. These could be done on the federal level or community level but state as much when you throw the idea out there. - Bringing back High School Specialty/Trade Classes (electrical, mechanical, plumbing, construction, etc.) - State level - Implement finance classes in High School to teach teenagers about cash management, investing, how to balance a check book, how the money supply works, etc. Make this a core class and not an elective. - State level - Abolish no child left behind. I have friends with special needs kids and those without and everyone of them have had several hours worth of discussion with me and none of them agree with it. - Federal level And I know some schools have some of these still, but they have been on the way out for sometime.
