Schools as I said should be made to teach one,the profession, not just an overall generalized formal education. General education from K-8...9-12 all high schools will be career specialized. And I do mean all of them...so this means parents will have to grow their kids up much faster but in many black houses this already happens only difference now would be placing them in a better position for their careers.
Schools should have the following designations...
6.) Political Science/Government/Economics
These are pretty much all specific enough for many to be better prepared into the profession after college.
Giving them a stronger background. Now for some that still do not know what they wish to do with their lives...you keep only a handful of "General H.S.'s" around...they point being you want to discourage this...and of course these schools would comply directly with State requirements for graduation and such with a regular HS Diploma.
In addition to these core courses at these specialized schools...you have what I call "reality courses" these as well being mandatory classes.
1.) Critical Thinking/Ethics/Morality
2.) Public Speaking
3.) Basic Automotive repair
4.) Effects of Credit/Loans...how these things work
5.) Business Etiquette/Ethics
6.) Sex Education/Health/Fitness/Nutrition
7.) Relationships/Racism/Sexism/ And the ethics involved in them
Athletics will be encouraged and anyone on such team will fill their fitness requirements...but not their sex education/health/nutrition requirements.
All these schools should look like mini-college campuses, especially where space is available. And just like college the students stay on campus and return home only when the semester is over, break them out of the habit of running to mommy or daddy to solve problems. They have to learn how to get along with people, because if they plan to go into the service or college this is going to be necessary, it's vital.
Teachers and administrators would be required to be on campus as well during the semester. So they are becoming one unit, connected by the desire to learn and to aspire to great things. Now this would take some use to more so from the parents than the students...parent would be allowed to visit during specified times...or stop by just like any other college does currently. Students only of same sex will be roommates...male and female dormitories will be on opposite sides of the campus...of course you'd have your Resident Advisor's....
Then people are going to bring up the sex issue between the teens...of course it would not be condoned...room checks will happen randomly...however as a part of teaching them "reality" condoms and contraceptions will be made available...and there will be campus police. Most times nothing will happen, but can't predict everything.
