Students should declare majors and minors during the last year of middle school. They should also take a careers course to help form definitive decisions on careers. The proposed Careers course would include a general introduction or discussion of the importance of selecting the right career, and would offer students the opportunity to explore a variety of careers…

The exploratory component would occur within the first few weeks or so of the course, and through online colleges and/or those that would specifically offer the noted programs online and via partnerships with middle and high schools.

Once students select formal concentrations they would officially enroll in those courses via the relevant online colleges or programs, which should offer the courses free of charge as an incentive for helping especially college-bound students decide on solid majors by official collegiate enrollment.
