Increase the ability for more advanced students to progress through school faster. Students who get suspended shouldn't be given a mini-vacation. They should have to help clean and fix up their school after hours. This would accomplish three things: work would teach them respect for others' property, work ethic, and true self-esteem. High School Juniors and Seniors should be allowed to take an internship or apprenticeship to begin learning a trade, or gain experience towards a profession. Schools need to teach financial responsibility starting at an early age, including how to save money and spend wisely (President Obama would have benefited greatly from this).
