2. Military Boarding School
The structure, stable environment, rewards. and consequences that young people often crave.
3. Nautical school
Shipboard equivalent to the above.

The old horse to water trope. There will always be those who fail to get along easily in civil society.
5. If a career or tech oriented program…
.... have the other topics involve the main course of study.
The History of Technology
The Art of Blueprints
The Language of Machines
6. Big Brother / Sister style mentorship’s.
Sometimes it just takes that one person.
7. Break the existing mold
We know that there is more than one style of learning. And more than one style of teaching. Design a curriculum with the flexibility to mix and match.
8. Do away with formal age or year based progression.
Instead of defined steps, make your education a continuous upward sloping line. Each student will progress through the curriculum at their own pace. When markers are reached and competence demonstrated, the student moves on. Some will graduate much earlier, others may take longer than expected.

For every hour less than 30, the student owes the community or school district an hour of labor; compensated at a very minimum wage.
Let each student figure out if unskilled employment is better than classroom instruction.
