When you want fewer to pass high school

In culture on December 30, 2014 at 17:02

In Denmark our parliament is busy trying to get fewer kids through high school. Our parliament is worried that too many focus of academic achievement. They want more Danes to choose manual labor as their line of business.

I don’t get this. I saw an article on the Internet regarding Dallas in Texas where the citizens are suing the authorities because the children can be labeled criminals if they don’t pass high school. Why is one part of the world trying to get more kids through high school and another country fewer kids through high school.

In Denmark truancy is almost gone. The main weapon use is Friday Bars on high school campuses where they students can socialize after classes over a beer or a glass of wine. The students gain friendships and some even life-long social network they use when changing jobs in the future.

The teenagers in Denmark want to go to high school despite the fact that many of them comes from working glass families where they are not trained at home to study and they cannot reach out to their parents because many of them don’t have the education which enables them to help their children. Private mentors and experts are hired by Danish parents because the study halls introduced last week for students attending form 1 to form 9 can only help average students. If students want to achieve the grade 10 or 12 which equals A in the US they need a boost from outside. It can be academically trained parents or hired help in town.

The social heritage is unbeatable. The students pass high school but for what purpose? The Danish parliament knows that. That’s why they are working to prevent those with the lowest grades in form 9 to enter High School steering them toward trade school or if they are totally cast-outs toward as a career as SOSU-assistants (who takes care of elderlies, mental patients and non-medically work in Hospitals.)

I fail to understand why a town like Dallas doesn’t do the same introducing the Friday bars. The results speak for themselves. Students will attend high schools in such numbers that you will have to introduce various precautions to keep some of them away.


  1. They would have to drastically lower the drinking age, there are so many stories that come out of the US of teens being brutalized, jailed, strip searched, and traumatized because they were caught drinking. In Cleveland they used the SWAT team to arrest a dozen or so teen girls who were having a few drinks in their parents basement. They weren’t making noise, a nieghbor felt the need to report them. They were put through hell.
