SEARCH BLOG: UNIVERSITY MODEL
At the end of January and the beginning of February, I wrote a series about smaller schools and the concept of a "university model" for high schools.
In McNeil, Texas... a suburb of Austin... there is a newer, larger high school that has a small engineering "college" and a health science "college" within the larger high school "university." This is what I was proposing, although my proposal was more extensive; the entire high school would be composed of these "colleges."

I guess Texas must be one of those few places where U.S. kids still want to be engineers instead of importers or working in the "service industry."..
