WHILE THE CONFERENCE AND PROGRAM RECEIVED AN OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF GREAT FEEDBACK, OTHERS WERE QUICK TO POINT OUT THAT IT SHOULDN’T BE THE SCHOOL’S RESPONSIBILITY TO TEACH THESE THINGS.
“I went to high school in a similar time period as you,” Lori Reynolds said. “A whole semester of cooking, a whole semester of useful math skills (banking, loans, interest rates, etc), changing tires and oil, etc…now they squeeze all these minimal daily living skills into one day, and have to have organizations come in for the day to teach it? That’s just pitiful. What a sad state the schools are in today.”
“Yeah, it SHOULD be left to the parents,” Nathan said. “It would be nice if they actually taught their kids something useful. Teachers already have a hard enough time with these kids who haven’t learned discipline from their parents.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS SCHOOL’S EFFORT TO TEACH STUDENTS THESE SKILLS? SHOULD COURSES LIKE THIS BE MANDATORY OR SHOULD IT BE UP TO THE PARENTS TO TEACH THESE THINGS?
