Brackish Waters

how my gaming and life coalesce.

Will my son go to Video Game School?

I stumbled upon this story on my drive home this evening and it really got me thinking more about what my impact will be on my child’s future.  He is still very young and only concerned about the adventures of Larry and Bob, but I can’t help but think about where he will be in 15 years and what he will be learning.

I chose to opt out of my education at my traditional high school and travel every day four towns over to an Agricultural School.  Picture your typical Tecnical/Vocational school but with cows, pigs, horses and lawnmowers.  I can’t say that it was my best decision but I learned a lot from it and I sure can groom the heck out of a cocker spaniel now.

When it comes time for my son to go to high school, I had planned on doing everything I could to encourage him to go to a tech school.  It seems somewhat foolish to not go to a school like that as you immediately come out the door with some hands-on experience and possibly a trade or skill.  Is this what the tech schools will be like in 15 years, combining programming and operating systems alongside history and sloppy joe?  Will he be coming home with projects of building character models and writing class traits?

If he does get the chance to go to a school like this, all I know is that I will be right there at the dinner table every night watching him do his homework with a smile on my face.
