Also they hardly teach any physics. If there was a second class I would add, it’s physics. We learn a year of biology and chemistry in high school, but not physics, the underlying science behind it all (and arguably the most important field for engineering and science).
Same here, I notice most can't even read a simple standard tape measure. I just needed someone to stay on the ground and cut material and hand it up to me.I was paying 12 bucks a hr 15 years ago for someone just to do that. I never found a young person. I ended up hire a retired guy to help me for a few days. Sad truth
@humanearth Tape MEASURE!! OMG!! What were you thinking? THAT IS A SUPER-COMPLEX TOOL! All those marks, and that thing that stops is from going back in? Holy shit! That could take half a day to train some on! Not to even introduce the hook, at the end, and the HOLE IN IT!!! WTF is THAT COMPLICATED THING?
One person could not get the concept the 6 marks on a 16th tape measure was ⅜ of a inch. I had to show them over and over again. What a ½ was and a ¼. I had to tell him. Look your not getting this. And let him go.
@humanearth If only Carter could have gotten the Metric System established!! IT IS SOOOOO much easier!! All powers of ten!! Not this silly British system!!
Now metric still fucks with me. I always use the tape as inch and when my hands get a hold of a metric one. I end up reading it as inch and fuck shit up. Lol
But that also comes from 30 plus years with a inch style tape. Old habits are hard to break
@humanearth I know both, and actually, Metric is MUCH easier!! :) :)
It's largely said the main point of school is to improve memory and logical thinking + problem solving. As you start approaching university with more specific directions, that's when the real learning starts.
Exactly, but the scenario is changing u can see the increased no of high school kids who suffer from mental illnesses. It will be really helpful for me if schools could help em with such issue coz such things affect studies too.

Having studied in the Baltics and in Denmark, do you not have counsellors within the school?
Yeah we have but, i am talking about proper courses for such thing on how to cope with such problems.
That is literally the duty of your school's counsellor/therapist. Psychology is a crazy vast subject and very complicated, it would not make sense to introduce younger students to these courses to be honest. Psychology isn't just depression and anxiety either.
Oh! Ok got it i just gave my opinion as per my knowledge for the subject. Thanks for enlightening me on this. ✌
I felt that way about college, I learned tons through the research I did, so I constantly did research projects in chemistry and physics, never paid attention to the classes after that as I was learning more than enough presenting papers and grant proposals. Also any project I missed could be made up by getting the teacher more funding, so, yeah, just an obstacle course.
@razelove the university didn't teach me much either but at least it's not the shitty high school anymore, so there's that at least
I can't remember high school, so I feel ill equipped to compare the two, then again I remember very little of the university I went to as well, so it all shakes out the same lol
Take a pick lol
Definitely how to manage a budget lol
I'm a bit inclined to agree. Though it should be noted to young people that your sexual attraction may not be set in stone (they teach sex ed anyway) we should keep in mind that overteaching anything may influence the minds of our children. My point being that if we teach kids, even teenagers, EVERYTHING about sexuality, they may just make that their whole life. Though the same situation has already started happening, due to a serious lack of information being taught to kids. They find out themselves and go "Wow this is a completely new part of the world no one is exploring!" And they lose sight of reality.
