My high school taught me how to do the most basic accounting possible. paying taxes? Nah, voting? Nah, political terms? Nah. How to buy a car or a house? Nah. How to write a check? Yes actually.

I look at all the people in the comments who are bitching about high school not teaching them how to pay taxes, how to vote, etc, etc, and I wonder what the 			****		 is wrong with them.   
   
In high school, I learned arithmetic, literacy, and the primal skills that teachers are problem solving and analysis. So if you need highschool to tell you directly what being Liberal or Conservative means, you probably shouldn't vote.

My high school taught me:

How to pay taxes, how to make and manage a bank account, how to pay bills, how to vote and the differences between conservative and liberal, how to buy a car, house, write a check.

I was home-schooled. But the curriculum was Abeka Accademy.

Haha if my dad had to teach me that, I'd be in debt $10,000, owe the bank $500, and be a conservative nut job who thinks any Democrat is the lowest form of the human species.

Actually, it came with prerecorded videos for 170 days of school, textbooks, and lesson planners.

no kid gets left behind:

if a kid is too retarded to study for a real career. teach them to throw a ball around and poof, potential overpaid athlete in the making
User avatar #62 to #58 - fourtwentt ONLINE (03/04/2013) [-]
implying every stupid kid gets some athletic scholarship, even tho the drop out rate is high as hell,

half the ******* i went to school with are drug dealers or working laborious jobs now
User avatar #75 to #62 - konradkurze (03/04/2013) [-]
i said potential...i never said they all succeeded

and the retarded and ******* who drop out, may not get anywhere real in life, still play their parts in the governments system....either be a braindead drone in a mindless job or be a criminal they can fine and lock up at the taxpayers expense

They lower the passing grades so more kids can pass - more kids pass, the school looks goods, and the IQ of the country slips another 2 or 3 points. And pretty soon all you'll need to get into college is a ******* pencil.
Politicians have traditionally hidden behind 3 things: the flag, the bible, and children - no child left behind, no child left behind.
Oh, really it wasn't to long you were talking about giving children a head start. Head start - left behind, someone's losing ******* ground here.

Well, since 99% of Americans think that Norway is the capital city of Sweden, I wonder why they bother to teach you at all.

People need to quit making **** up.
#66 to #42 - rawrmodez ONLINE (03/04/2013) [-]
It's okay, because I'm sure 70% of any European country realizes that Brazil is located in Mexico. Or that Americans tend to be more of a nomad type of people and move on to the next area once Wal-Mart has ran out of supplies.

Ican't speak for everyone here but that may be because geography class was a load of **** taught by a half assed teacher........just saying.
User avatar #44 to #35 - matthewfuckingmain (03/04/2013) [-]
Yeah, God forbid school actually expand your mind, and teach you new things.

Learning geology is different then thought control.
User avatar #80 to #78 - konradkurze (03/05/2013) [-]
yeah but the schools dont want kids to go outside and get interested in digging, that might lean towards independent thought....they cant have that

those who study the earth might be inclined to protect it from capitalism mining and raping the **** out of it for resources

***** geologists study rocks, geographers make maps and ****
#40 to #35 - masokist (03/04/2013) [-]
Yes, learn geography to become a geologist.... Haha, sorry not trying to be a Grammar Nazi here but....
Geologists work with rocks, they study geology.
Geographers study geography.
