How would you redesign the current high school program?

I have the opportunity to help completely redesign a local high school program. There's no debate that drastic reforms are needed and I was hoping you would have some ideas on what should be added, what should be altered and what should be scrapped altogether. I'm looking for a wide range of answers from specific details to broader ideas on the whole system. Don't hold back. Im looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

    Dec 6 2011: When games and other tools of indoctrination repeatedly involve you in experiencing a given virtual reality more intensely than direct personal experience,and thereby to trust it more, they strangle your soul.

    Have a nice day!

      Dec 6 2011: I don't think that shooting someone in real life is experienced "less intensely" than doing so in a video game. Also, I don't understand what you mean when you say "they strangle your soul". However, I really don't think it's in good taste to have this conversation here, since Zach made this thread hoping to get suggestions on how to redesign his current high school program. If you start a new topic about this, I'm sure there will be many people (myself included), who would love to talk about it.
