education accessibility solution

In my opinion, the education you get in free public high school should qualify you for an earning potential of at least $40,000. Currently, this is not the case at all. I propose everyone in free public high school get fully trained in at least one trade, even the “academic” bound students. Then if they want to do fancy academics, their 25 hour per week skilled job could fund it, such as massage therapist, carpenter or bookkeeping, instead of cashier, barista, or telemarketer!
