Vanishing Youths

Reading about dropouts triggers a lot of frustration. The answers seem so simple yet not many are acting on good ways of dealing with education. Instead of building institutional sized high schools people should go back to smaller schools. At a time when young people need closer attention the larger insitutions lose too many of our future. An article in the LATimes, makes the case for my idea. Also, could our society not go back to different tracks as not all humans are ready for college at the age of 18? Some need time in the world to figure out who they are and what they'd like to do.
