Walking one day. Hear noise.
Look over just in time to see a truck smack into a sedan.
**** goes everywhere
Run over, people are carrying a girl out of her car.
Pull out my phone, dial 000 (emergency number down unda).

Operator picks up, suddenly realize I have no ******* idea what to say.
My face when I'm trying to figure out how to answer the operator's questions when there's yelling and a female screaming metres away from me.

Parents. If they're parenting correctly you should know this ****, why rely on schools for everything?

I think the point is that there are times in school where we learn things that only a few of us will put into honest practice. Meanwhile, however, there are topics and lessons that everyone will need to know about, such as those listed above, that we don't hear a word about.

then what if your parents refuse to tell you how and force you to "figure it out" on your own? I'm just lucky enough to have brothers and a sister and friends who have steady jobs who have done it all already who can help

Maths
Civics
English

Most of those are just basic functions of existence. If you can't figure out how to number a bunch of boxes, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

You must not be American.
Or if you are, you must have gone to private school.
If neither of the above are applicable to you, I am impressed that an American public high school actually taught you something.

American in Missouri here. Southern America(somewhat. Stereo typically retarded and all). Money management is now a high school requirement. Politics is a big part of history. Had to write a resume for English. Not sure how far spread, but we got those.

-How to do taxes: I was never taught this myself in school, but there are an extremely large amount of websites that can help you with this.
-What taxes are: I was taught this in 8th Grade, also if you didn't know what taxes were even before then, then you're pretty stupid.
-How to vote: I was taught this in 8th Grade civics, and if you can't figure out how to check a box then you're an idiot.
-What political parties are: again 8th grade Civics, plus it's been discussed in about all my high school history classes.
-How to write a resume: taught in 10th and 11th grade English
How to write a check/balance a check book: I'll give you that. But I don't really see why it's the school's responsibility to teach you that.
-Anything to do with banking: I learned in 10th grade Trig about how to calculate interest. Banks run off interest. What else do you want to know?
-How to do loans for college: Any competent Guidance Office would be glad to show you how to do this, if you would ask them.
-How to jump start a car or other basic emergency things: Why the **** should non-elective classes teach you this? Most high schools offer Auto classes as electives, so if you were to take that you would have been taught.
-How to buy a car or house: Again, why the **** should school teach you how to buy something? And if you can't figure out how to buy something, you're a ******* retard.

The job of the school is to prepare you for a job or college, and offers different courses depending on which path you're going to take. Had you chosen a vocational path during High School, more of those things would have been taught to you.

TL;DR, the school actually DOES teach you half these things, and the other half you should either know by common sense or it isn't their job to teach you how to do in the first place.

I'm sorry, but I don't, even if I did, they most likely wouldn't work outside of the US if you live in a different country. I know about them due to commercials though, and you could probably just Google it for a tutorial on how to do it.

You think buying a house is as simple as getting groceries? I think you're the retard here. Trust me, because I've seen first-hand. Buying a house requires credit checking and maintaining, having credit card and bank accounts for good credit history, filing your tax returns (which is no easy typing-123 task either), obtaining tons of documentation about your financial history, getting a pre-approval after spending an hour or more on the phone with a mortgage lender, getting the house checked for a list full of possible defects, utility setup, customize house including repainting, floor finishing (they teach you those at school right? hah.), settlement, insurance, and a million other things I didn't mention. But since you think it's like swiping a credit card, keep living inside your delusional head.

lol.

1) nice commenting on something that I literally posted a year ago.
2) I didn't say it was a fast process. I didn't even say it was easy. But if you're not retarded you can get it all done. They even have people to help you out. Trust me, they want you to buy that house or car.

It may teach YOU most of those things, but others aren't so privileged as to go to a school that does so. No school curriculum actually includes those things (aside from taxes and Driver's Ed ). Electives are electives, I for one, don't have the pleasure of wasting an elective on that when I could be taking a higher learning class or something to further me on my career.

The point being, it's not their job to teach us these things, you're right. But it should be. Even if not mandatory, at least allow such a class as an online course, w have that ability now.

I don't see why my school would offer classes that others couldn't unless you lived in a 3rd world country. In our high school we have over 50% of the student body eating free or reduced lunch, and our area is extremely poor.

and since it's assured that you DO have access to internet, it would be a simple thing to simply Google a tutorial for any of these things. It won't be a perfect learning tool but it will help a lot. Another reason the schools shouldn't have to teach us these things.

Well, now you're assuming that everybody is similar to us in the sense that they actually want to learn these things at this age, and would take them up outside of school. Which once again, isn't even close to the case.
