Graduating at 16?

New Hamshire plans on moving toward a European-style educational system that allows kids to test out of high school at the end of their sophomore year and start attending community or technical colleges. What are your thoughts on this?

Let's do it.

Of course that means a lot of high performers will "opt out" of the high school system. Maybe adminstrators will have to put together programs and policies to encourage them to stay and bring up the averages.

OTOH if we give schools a bonus for giving kids a "high school level" education in 2 years instead of 4, they can concentrate efforts at the Jr/Sr level on the kids who really need help.

Not seein a downside here, sorry.

It would be motivating for a lot of high schoolers, knowing that you could finish early and leave spit wads and hallway gossip behind forever.
