    English with an emphasis in journalism, but I decided that with an English major I would probably become a teacher. So I changed my major to Art History. I became a teacher.
    What about you?

    I've got an issue something like that, most of my science doesn't count anymore! Actually none of it does. What I don't understand is why math credits no longer count. I don't have to redo math because I just tested instead but really, what's different?

    Men, a question: Do you think it would have helped you, harmed you, or been a neutral factor to have been pulled out of school for two years, (all boys, not just you) between the ages of about 13 and 15, to work physically and do useful projects? I think it would be better for boys hitting puberty and trying to become men to put their minds and bodies to use in different ways than sitting all day in a classroom.

    Even the men who enjoyed school overall remember those years as a time they hated. The ones who DID leave school (to add to family income) went back later but don't regret being out for a while. I'm wondering if it may hold true for more than just the small sample I know of.

      In general, I think school is really designed for girls, so you may have a good idea. In earlier days boys at least got to take classes in wood shop, metal shop, auto mechanics and printing.. I don't think any of those exist in today's systems.

      1. wilderness profile image97
        wildernessposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I was going to reply "no", but you make a good point.  I took wood shop, metal shop and electronics shop in high school.  Also was a chemistry lab assistant, designing and running my own experiments. (Almost finished an electronic gizmo to dissolve C-C bonds, like in flesh, but got caught before it was done).

        All of which kept me building things, and I worked (paperboy, then other jobs later on).  Kids don't seem to do any of that today.
