Subjects Kids Should Be Taught in Schools Before Graduating
Todays schools are very different then the schools I experienced when I was a kid. I am not saying everything they did back then was great, but there are a few things I would focus on again to get kids ready for the real world. Heck, there a lot of things I would add that I feel have never honestly been focused on enough.
When I was in school, computers were just becoming the norm. We had a full day of classes even as seniors, kids were still spanked with a paddle, and you had gym class every day until you were a senior. Nowadays schools are very different. Most seniors only have about a half a day of classes, they obviously don't spank students anymore, and they stopped having to take gym as freshman or even younger. While both are different, neither generation does a great job of teaching their students certain skills they need to survive in the world. Here is a small list of things I think we could add to our schools curriculum to better prepare our kids.
How to change a tire, change the oil, and basic car knowledge
