Jim Hightower

"Jeb, who likes to call himself the 'Education Governor,' wants Florida to require every incoming high schooler to make a career choice and declare a major - as they enter the ninth grade! Every student would then have to have their four-year high school education narrowed, concentrating on subjects within their declared major - whether that's music or auto repair.

The ninth grade! You're only 14 years old! How do you know at this tender (and confusing) age what career is best for you?"

that's just stupid. I had no idea even when I went into uni. They should instead have you study as many different things as possible so you can have some idea of what the options are instead!
