Still working on educating the adults of the future. Timeliness is essential to success. Whose with me?
As mentioned last Tuesday in my Thought Tuesday Blog Adulting 101, I believe I have contributed to the growing problem of teens entering adulthood lacking basic skills. Despite and education system that focuses dollars and hours on testing skills, I can’t find any evidence of testing life skills of students before graduation. Basic skills such as basic household tasks, etiquette, community resources, getting a job, and finances are lacking. I also believe that the missing knowledge is an oversight on my part… on our part. We missed teaching these skills in an effort to cram reading, writing, math, science, extra curricular activities, etc. into their overloaded brains.
Thus… today I begin to change that. Look out teen who lives in my house. Here it comes! (all you other teens can listen up too!).
