    Why are our schools not teaching the basic survival skills?

    For those of you that do not think we need to know them, please consider the happenings all around us. 

    It just makes good sense that people know what to do in the event of a disaster of some sort.

      I agree, the best survival skill the school has is duck and cover. Really its on us to teach our kids how to survive. The schools only provide education.

        How about parents teaching these skills to the kids?  That would ensure they source them, too as many parents have no idea of basic survival.  Along with that, why don't we have basic survival kits in the home?  And it wouldn't be a bad subject for all schools (some have them)  Diogenes

          Basic survival kits:  what would be in yours?

          A list of herbs that offer antibacterial properties, a chart on how to identify them and instructions on how to prepare them.
          Instructions on how to build a fire even if there are no matches or any batteries, a pot in which to boil water. Instructions, instructtions, instructions....
