What Real Life Subjects Should Be Taught in School?

Cindy and I were discussing what real life subjects should be taught in school. Kids get heavy doses of things like geometry, trig, and calculus; but maybe managing bank accounts, credit cards, college loans, and even mortgage stuff would be more useful.

Maybe not ‘instead of,’ but at least included with the rest. What about:

  • Common sense? (Never mind, can’t teach that one.)
  • Leadership?
  • Budgeting?
  • Cooking with healthy ingredients?
  • Fixing minor problems — electrical, automotive, or otherwise?
  • Car and home buying?

Anyhow, the list could go on and on (and we’re hoping it does). Add to the list of things we should be taught in school by commenting below, emailing pete@98country.om, or better yet, give us a call in the studio at 320-252-9897.
