  1. We think that these 5 things that schools don’t teach you are good to relearn, such as how to have time-management these are the best thing on our time our life is nothing but time and on a schedule for a month at a time.
    This time-management skill is useful to have all the time.
    Public speaking is hard for us we will work harder to overcome this fear of the public and seeing how they will be apart of our network and to engage with others when they do have questions and we have the answers.

    1. I am glad you found these 2 points valuable. Time management and public speaking are definitely important. If you have a great idea, but don’t know how to present it in an effective way, the idea will stay in your head. And if you have a great plan, but don’t know how to spread your activities during the day, you may get overwhelmed, but get nothing done.

      I wish you good luck 🙂

  2. Great article on 5 things schools doesn’t teach us. My husband will love to read this article so I will share with him. Thanks for sharing!

  3. It is amazing how even with a school education it does not stop there. There is so much more to learn after your graduate and you have nailed it with your post. I hope this would be an eye-opener for those who read it. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thanks for the article, I really appreciate your opinion and can’t agree more. School, unfortunately, teach us things which are not needed in daily life. No practical skills, not even they will teach you how to manage your money. I think not many people are aware of the situation and they should watch your video. Especially parents. All the skills need to be taught by parents if the school can’t provide it at all.

    1. I agree. It is hard to change the education system when no one knows who you are. That’s why the best thing you can do as a parent is to teach your kids all the important things that school fails to teach them. Don’t just teach them these principles. Live by them. Your kids will imitate you naturally.

  5. Great post. I’ve been saying for many years now that the school systems are archaic and don’t properly prepare kids for the real world, after school. Apart from the above, I’d add that school doesn’t address financial intelligence either; avoiding debt, investing early and creating wealth, how to properly budget… Currently it’s something that I’ll have to teach my son myself, but I’d rather that then he has to go through the same mistakes and pitfalls that we all did.
    All the best.

    1. I completely agree with you. I think the government does that on purpose. They know that if more and more people realize that they don’t have to work a 9 to 5 job, there will not be enough workforce.
      I guess the best we ”regular” people can do is to educate the younger generation about all the important things in life and don’t let them fall victims to a 9 to 5 job that they hate.

  6. There is so much to change in the present educational system because we all graduated from school and it’s of no value if we look back because all that we were thought was to solve mathematical problems but did not know how to solve life problems.
    We were thought to submit assignments before deadlines but we were never thought how to manage our time, we learned how to speak but didn’t know how to communicate and speak confidently in front of an audience. We always got restrictions to think beyond because it was all about grades, not about our passion.

    School failed to teach us the purpose of life. We were thought how to do certain things but didn’t learn what the purpose is of what we were doing. Real education is where students are thought about time management, communication, public speaking, motivate them to be self-confident, help them recognize their purpose in life.

    Life is not all about getting a high-paid job but real success is following your dreams. Lastly, we must learn how to tap our inner soul and listen to our inner voice and should not follow society’s norms but do what we love to do, follow our passion. Find meaning in our life.

    1. You are absolutely right!

      The school system must not only change, it must be completely transformed. It’s strange that the cars we drive and the phones we use has completely transformed, but the school system has stayed the same ever since the industrial age. Even though some schools have computers, the concept of going to a building, sitting for 8 hours, and listening to a teacher has stayed the same.

      I like what you said ”we were thought how to solve mathematical problems but did not learn how to solve life problems”

      So many students stress over grades, but the problem isn’t in them. The problem is that society has programmed them to think that grades are something important.

      Personal development has changed my life and I believe it must be something every kid gets introduced to from an early age.

  7. I agree with you on the subject of this article. There is a lot that schools don’t teach us. We are told to copy and paste instead of being shown how, what we study relates to real life. Children should be given an opportunity to pursue their passions in life.

    Children in schools should be encourages to present their work before classmates. This will build their esteem and prepare them best for life ahead.
