Daily Prompt: The New School

“You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?” –The Daily Post

I think school systems would benefit from having classes on more realistic topics like how to raise children, how to pick a suitable partner, and how to pick a job that is right for you. Unfortunately, it would be easy for teachers to say something that may not necessarily be correct. For instance, if a teacher values money more than happiness, they may push their students in what might be the wrong direction. Likewise, a homophobic teacher would be reluctant to suggest the possibility of choosing a same-sex mate.
