It goes to 11…

A state Senator in Utah has a plan that many in the state see as attractive given a $700M budget shortfall.

The sudden buzz over the relative value of senior year stems from a recent proposal by state Sen. Chris Buttars that Utah make a dent in its budget gap by eliminating the 12th grade. The notion quickly gained some traction among supporters who agreed with the Republican’s assessment that many seniors frittered away their final year of high school..

It’s quite something when the perceived solution to an education problem is … even less education.  A similar solution for a perceived constraint was suggested by my generational high-school philosopher Nigel Tufnel who noted, that if you’re already on 10 on your guitar, where can you go from there? Where? Where?

High School in Utah?  It goes to 11.
