Is it time for education to get an overhaul?
I have been out of high school for over a decade and I still do not understand why we were taught what we were taught in school. From personal experience, a person is nowhere near ready to go out into the real world when they turn 18. But maybe they could be more prepared for it if they were taught a thing or two about it!
I understand things like science and math are useful. But people need actual street smarts and common sense when they are pushed out of the house and into society. I have never once dissected a frog or a pig fetus as an adult. I also have never had to use the Pythagorean Theorem. But I did have to figure out how to be a functioning and contributing member of society when I had zero real-life experience.
It would be great if schooling changed to better-equip kids for growing up.
