      That's up to you to get a job.

      It looks like that is what Pearl said that. "how to get a job when noone will give you one" she said how to get a job and the when no one will give you one is after you go in and ask for one is how I took it.

      You don't wait for someone to give you a job, you just take a job.
    • Pearl Lederman
      i dont think you could just take a job
    • Archie Bunker
      You can't just sit around and wait for a job. You have to make yourself worth a business investing in. And you're competing against other (in most cases) so you have to stand out about the other applicants.
  • For students: Student safety including self defense. community involvement, citizenship, love and acceptance. For faculty: Security, student safety, profiling, counseling, mental health. And they should have increased video and audio monitoring in every room and closet! Problems should be recognized and resolved before they escalate.

      I don't know if a police state is the answer. But more compulsory community/military involvement is something our country is lacking. Not everyone will be a soldier or a missionary, but the definition is broad enough to encompass all sorts of labor, technical and social activity.
    • Linda Joy
      Likening audio and video surveillance of a public classroom to a police state is terribly irresponsible of you. I'm talking about security in the public schools, which is what everyone is fussing about these days even though statistics were worse in the '90's. And I think involvement in community and military should be encouraged but not compulsory unless it is the result of a punishment for crime. I'd never send a child in my care to a public school beyond 6th grade. All they learn there is how to be a thug!
  • They don't teach Civics anymore. It should be required.
    • Linda Joy
      Every state requires students to complete coursework in civics or social studies in order to graduate. The amount of coursework varies by state.
    • Archie Bunker
      What they teach is nothing like we had when I was in high school. Sad.
  • Lessons about God.
    • Archie Bunker
      Lessons about God are for church, not school.
    • Rick Myres
      I know that.

      They have religious schools that teach those things.
  • Mental health
  • minor home repair

      When I was teaching this is a subject I designed and taught in the school I was teaching in. The class consisted of how to change out wall outlets and light switches safely. wiring door bells. repairing dry wall damage, etc. I had one female student who saw me several years later thanks to my class she was able to replace the light switch in her bedroom. I also had a class of small appliance repair. I had one student bring in a toaster that wasn't working. It had a dead and toasted mouse in it.
  • I felt like I learned nothing of use in secondary school. I learned a lot in primary school and also learned a lot at the university, but those four years in between seemed like a waste of time.
  • It is starting to be taught again in some schools, but cursive is a foreign language to many students today. They cannot read or write it.
    • bostjan the adequate 🥉
      What purpose does cursive writing fulfill, though? If you want to write something quickly, use shorthand. If you want to write something other people can read, you can use whatever form of writing with which the general population is most comfortable. If you want something to look fancy, type it on the computer and print it in a fancy font. If you find yourself out of ink or without a printer, and you need something to look fancy, then if you have good print handwriting, that should suffice anyway.
    • Linda Joy
      People who can read cursive are needed for indexing. People have snapped photos of old documents like Draft registration, old birth certificates and old census forms, etc from when people wrote in cursive. They need people who can read these documents and key the data into the computer so the old information can be entered into the database.
  • I would really like it to be a piano. My nephew goes to a private school, but it's uncomfortable
