Five skills schools don't teach

by Code Monkey

This article points outs five skills I wish schools had spent more time teaching

We focus on more and more standardized tests, chase dreams of competing with other nations in Math/Science so we adopted “common core”, but are we doing enough to create well rounded citizens ?

5 life skills we need to teach in school

1) Communication

Workers need better communication skills to take orders right?

2) Financial literacy

To much profit in keeping a nation in debt?

3) Emotional intelligence

Easier to sway a populus on emotion versus facts?

4) Nutrition

Seen the school lunches and junk food vending machines? Is there any profit in citizens knowing how to eat healthy and control their weight?

5) Civics

Workers who know how government works might change it ?
