In the following article, Emma Longhurst discusses the “real world” versus the world students inhabit in high school. She offers food for thought when it comes to the way teachers and administrators hope to prepare their charges:

I believe that people are aware that there is such a disconnect between high school and college. However, they believe that this is the way school has been for a while, and we’ve gotten this far as a society, so changing it is fruitless. But society changes, and the flawed system is starting to become inoperable. Depending on the day you ask me, I can’t wait until it’s time for college, and I feel optimistic about my future. On another day, I get anxious thinking about how much harder everything is going to be, and how I don’t think that I can handle all of that change. Because really, that’s the key word here: change.
