Do schools not teach kids the right thing?
right so im cleverish, im 16. I can do geography, speak almost fluent French, I can do trigonometry,pythag,standard deviation, spearmans rank of coefficient correlation...etc all clever thingslike that but I can't actually do something basic like operate a washing machine... I can cook and clean and stuff but I know loads my age and older who can only cook beans on toast! They don't know how to dry or clean clothes, hoover, or anything! ...yet they're really clever. I don't think were taught the right kind of skills. Wen am I Eva gonna need to know the division of x2-42X45c or something..shouldnt we ought to know how to cook, maintain a house,pay bills, sort out a morgage, pension funds etc ... I don't even know how to open a bank account. Is this just me or is this a mutual feeling?
