You may learn a lot in high school, but do you learn the things you really need to know?
Sure algebra and chemistry are important, but what about basic life skills?
That was the purpose behind an “adulting day” at Bullitt Central High School in Kentucky.
Seniors got intensive one-on-ones with people from the community who taught them skills that will help them in the “real world.”
Some of those skills include dorm room cooking, changing a tire, balancing a checkbook and more.
They may not have learned everything they need to know, but they’re closer than they were before.
“I think that the idea occurred to me originally, I saw a Facebook post that parents kept passing around saying they needed a class in high school on taxes, and cooking,” said Christy Hardin, from the school.
“Our kids can get that, but they have to choose it. And today was a day that they can pick and choose pieces that they didn’t feel like they had gotten so far.”
