What I’d like to see schools assess

Rates among their graduates of the following:

  • Cheating at work or school
  • Suicide
  • Divorce
  • Drug use
  • Sexual promiscuity
  • Violent crimes
  • White collar crimes
  • Preservation of the tradition

I would want a low rate of all but the last of those, just to be clear.

  1. I’d be interested in seeing all those things assessed and more. That kind of information could go a long way to completing the loop of preserving tradition. I’d expect the rate of preservation of tradition to climb over time, actually, if for no other reason than because of the momentum built up within our communities over time.

    Of course, in order for schools to see themselves clear to assessing these things, they’d need to retain more intimate relations with their alumni, don’t you think?

    • Yes, I suppose they would. That would seem the responsible thing to do. At least it would be good if the schools were private institutions.

      I get nervous about institutions with the power of the state behind them keeping careful track of people they “serve.”
