What I needed to learn in high school

in #education4 years ago (edited)

  1. Public speaking
  2. Project management
  3. Negotiation
  4. Conflict resolution
  5. Software development
  6. Accounting
  7. Financial planning
  8. Critical thinking
  9. Tax preparation
  10. Trading stocks
  11. People management
  12. Customer service
  13. Marketing

All of those skills are very necessary in life, not just for running a business.

... And our education system is exactly the opposite! Kids are being turned into mindless drone workers. Enough skills to work in the system, but not smart enough to start asking critical questions.

Our entire education system definitely needs a major overhaul.

(I also wanted someone to teach me that a time would come when something known as Bitcoin would come and I should buy them by the trucks loads!)

What did you miss at school?

Sort:  

I didn't miss much- I played Hookey a lot- almost every year of school- including highschool- I had letters sent home- saying that based on the number of days I'd missed- if I missed anymore days- I'd have to make them up in summer school.......
