I always remember that Alexander The Great's horse was called Beaucephalus. Not sure of the spelling, but it I can't say that knowledge has done anything for me or helped with job skills.
oh yes, and how to thread a needle, but another teacher in a college of further education said that wasn't the right way, and undid my work. I was over 30 at the time, raised two children, had run a home, and had a job. This is our education system...go figure.
Not to pull that girls pony tail.
Main thing I learned in school is life is not fair, teachers play favorites, those in power often take advantage.
In the modern times all the schools all necking the children into the arena of unnecessary competition with others. So unnecessary GRADES and MARKS are ruling the lives of children instead of gaining any excellence in their skills, talents and abilities. It should be COMPETITION WITH IN but not COMPETITION WITH OTHERS.
Thanks for BA
