Sitting sitting all day long, Listening listening on and on. Zoning out and getting by, not really learning how to live this life. When will the teachers finally see, that this is not the way things need to be. In the m ajority of students common knowledge is lacked, for we are taught by teachers whose priorities are whacked . We need to learn life lessons first, then learn the systems of the universe. I need to learn how to manage money, not the inverse of the cosine of three. How to do my taxes, this I do not know. But I can tell you all about Juliet and Romeo. We need to stop teaching things that most will never use, and focus on essential things that many don't know how to do.
