Do you believe there should be a life course required in your senior year of high school?
I know I viewed the world much differently when I was a senior in high school. I had no clue how hard life would be. I believe there should be a course taught in your final year of school that should focus solely on life. Perhaps, it can be focused on jobs, bills, expenses, ect. A crash course on what to expect.
This is an excellent idea, but how to narrow down all the different things that could/should be taught! If you can at least cover the basics - it gives them a better shot at "life". Unfortunately too many parents leave the responsibility for these "life" lessons to others.
who is going to be the one who decides what life is about ? every person's life is different and their goals are different etc.
I don't know how much good it would do, When I was in art school, I became interested in wood carving. It was not part of the curriculum. After graduating, I got a book and read about it. I talked to an old woodcarver or two. The first thing they teach is not to cut across the grain. I got the best Swiss tools that money can buy. I was well prepared for carving wood.
The first thing I did was cut across the grain, "Oh! Now I know what they mean."
Besides, when you are 18, that is the smartest you will ever be for the rest of your life.
Absolutely! I think it should cover budgeting, resume writing, rental agreements and basic home economics. I know some schools in Canada offer a course like this, but it is not manditory.
Some high schools do provide such a class. At mine, it was called Consumer Economics. The problem isn't necessarily that the information isn't available; it's that eighteen-year-old kids just don't think it's important yet. They see college as "more time," not realizing that they can start putting those principles to use right away. Rent, bills, resumes, and so forth seem very far away to a high schooler. Trying to convince them that those real-life struggles are imminent is the challenge.
yes, I had one in my high school. I found it rather helpful... unfortunatelly a few of my classmates saw the class as one to blow off
