think about it.
10 years of highschool.
+2 years of training is equal to those jobs you have said.
instead of 12 years of k-12 and another year of training.
thats 13 years.
when was the last time a student took a standardized exam? may i ask?
and those exams are not accurate.
you know why?
principals often choose which sections to take the exams to get more fund allocation.
and often a few weeks before the exam the students are given a refresher course. so as to up their scores.
