At the Carnival of Education, hosted by The Ed Wonks, 30plusteacher takes on another blogger’s list of courses high schools should offer, including How To Do Laundry and Clean Your Living Area and How To Cook a Week’s Worth of Healthy Food. What are we supposed to do, asks 30plusteacher.
Build on a laundry room in every high school and purchase sorting bins for every student.
. . . While I am not a supporter of many of the menu choices I see in my school cafeteria (pizza served with mashed potatoes) perhaps this would be a better class for parents in order to provide better choices than drive-throughs for dinner.
I’m with 30plus: I’d like to see schools focus on teaching academics and leave parenting to parents.
