Is school really teaching us the skills we need? Education Departments believe they are setting us up to survive. In reality, are they setting us up to fail due to lack of life skills and lessons? We need school to balance and maintain basic skills with in life skills. Like how to buy a house or know our Human Rights! They believe with the math skills or how much history we know that we will be able to function. Although, they have never taught us how to put those skills to use.

For example, We are taught to use our math skills, but we are never taught how to use them in any other circumstance besides shopping or figuring out area. What if we need to pay the bills or apply for a job? We were never handed the basics of these task. Therefor, when going into the "real world" we are already stepping off on the wrong foot. If this isn't enough proof, what about our human rights? Many people end up in trouble or a circumstance where we need them but don't know them. Did you know, Ipsos.com states "every 4 out of 10 people know little to nothing about their human rights" That would be if there are 328.8 million people in the US, there are 131.28 million people that don't know their Human Rights or Life Skills due to being untaught. Saying this, You can't rely on parents to teach their children these skills due to not being taught these skills either. The gap is growing in our actual knowledge and could soon be lost if we don't take the chance to change and teach these skills now. If we are taught these skills and bring in more important life lessons (not saying to erase these things we are learning now completely but to shorten or make somethings a choice to learn in order to learn more needed things) we could not only help but bring up the statistics of the State or even the US itself. The percentage of the homeless or struggling could go down with this because it would've given the necessary start they needed. It could go down 27 percent because Helpthehomeless.org states "27 percent of the homeless are there due to unaffordable housing" Maybe this would've been different if they were taught how to manage.

Seeing this, what is being taught and what is needed to be taught in order to gain what we need is a much needed cause. We need to take this action as it stands so future Citizens have the necessary tools they need to survive in life.
