I like the sentiment. Have a plan.

I wonder if there is more that can be done to encourage this as part of the graduation process. In a way it is more important than classes and grades. IDGAF how you did in trigonometry if your plan doesn't really have anything to do with it. Heck, I am in a STEM field and I haven't used trig a single time in my career, much less calculus. While I can see the role of geometry (the logic behind proofs is somewhat relevant), I can't even tell you why trig or calculus are important beyond demonstrating the aptitude for learning and applying obscure math. There is not exactly a big market for people who can calculate the path of a catapulted projectile.

But I digress. Can being able to conceptualize a plan and indicate how your work in high school prepares you to execute that plan be part of the graduation process?
