    So then it's just a centralized database of all available cirriculums and programs? What other features would it have?

    The tracks would have to be defined. The available curriculums would be assigned to those tracks. Obviously there's oodles of reporting mechanisms as to where you are in a track or across related tracks). Could be smart enough to evaluate progress and suggest related tracks (or more suitable tracks? "Would you like fries with that?")

    ...and just think of the job creation possibilities! You think the IRS is bloated?

    So, would it just be a list of resources, an exhaustive list of options, maybe with an automated carreer guidence counselor, with "carreer tract overviews" and maybe a student progress tracking function? What am I missing? I'm guessing this is for middle-school and highschool students. Sounds like it's designed to serve home-schoolers, mixed partial homeschoolers, to help them find a direct route to a carreer path. I'm saying homeschoolers because I believe the school already offers this service, right?
    Do you have in mind career aptitude and placement
    Tests?

    Look at this! It's AT&T's international searchable database of zoos, aquariums, museums, libraries and stuff. It looks like they offer classroom videoconferencing for hire. A quick search showed me that you can learn about Alaska's marine biology by videoconference. It's for schools, not for home use. But it's still pretty cool.

    Hey! Check this out!. . Supposedly It uses the same "buying history software" that amazon uses to tell us "other customers who liked your choices also bought.". For a comprehensive, non-linear cirriculum that still covers all the bases. Sadly, only a computer could keep up with "kid's on so many levels". And here's a link,zhian.
    See if this could further your hopes for the school system

    Huh. The link is good. I wonder why it won't blue?
