What subject or area of study should you have been taught in school, but you weren't ?
Did your studies leave out something important that would have been helpful to you or many students?
I think people should be taught about what they'll need, and how to start a bank account. Then, they should be taught how badly they'll be screwed over by any bank for using an ATM, or for over-drafting the account. And so they need to be taught about how predatory credit card companies are. And student loan companies are hardly better.
Those types of things were never taught in school. At least not when I was in school.
I just wish I would have paid more attention in school and been more into learning. I went through my 12 years of school without any kind of guidance. I am now 70 and everything I know now is what I learned through experience and know now that there are a lot of things I would have loved to have learned in school.
Yeah! Many subjects like cosmology, and subjects which teach us about taxation, persuasive techniques, how to fight depression etc. should've been taught but these gems were missing. All I learned from school is how to memorize such, such and such...which has no meaning and it's no use in today's world. Most of the things that I learned in school are futile now.
More than rot learning or memorizing things, schools should, I think, concentrate on building a student's interest.

Should BOTH Evolution AND Creation should be thought in public schools?I think yes. Evolutionists state that Creationists brainwash children by not allowing other things to be studied by children. However Evolutionists fall into the same trap; they only allow Evolution and nothing else. I think...

Through evolution theory the deceiver is attempting to silence the testimony of creation about the Creator, to destroy belief in the Word and to ultimately destroy faith in the true God, replacing him with nonsensical happenings that have no meaning, no need for good rather than evil, and no...
