The American High School
Ediger, Marlow
College Student Journal, v42 n3 p814-817 Sep 2008
Of all levels of schooling, the high school receives by far the most criticism. There are continuous innovations recommended in journal articles, textbooks, and speeches at state/national conventions on ways to improve the secondary level of schooling. At one teacher education convention, the speaker was criticizing the American high school and said that students therein felt it was boring. After his presentation, I asked him if "high schools are boring" had become a slogan. He had to admit that there was some truth in my question. Generally, little is said about the specifics as to why it is so boring.
