Ken Larsen's web site - Vital life skills need to be taught in high school
I suggest that a class called "Vital Life Skills" be added to the high school curriculum. It would be a smorgasbord of short/week-long topics such as:
How to do a tax return
The hazards and upside of social media
The important of protecting the environment via recycling, proper trash disposal
Many more could be added to this list.
We need to better prepare our youth for the real world.
The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics has several life skills classes:
|Course||Name of course||Details|

|RE112||Public Speaking I|
|RE114||Public Speaking II|
|RE116||Marketing You||Resume writing and interview skills.|
|RE118||Excellence in Leadership|
