Walking one day. Hear noise.
Look over just in time to see a truck smack into a sedan.
**** goes everywhere
Run over, people are carrying a girl out of her car.
Pull out my phone, dial 000 (emergency number down unda).

Operator picks up, suddenly realize I have no ******* idea what to say.
My face when I'm trying to figure out how to answer the operator's questions when there's yelling and a female screaming metres away from me.

Maths
Civics
English

Most of those are just basic functions of existence. If you can't figure out how to number a bunch of boxes, you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

I'm not gonna need to know how to buy a car or house. I'll just need to know how to buy a blimp. People who live in mobile homes don't pay property taxes.

-How to do taxes: I was never taught this myself in school, but there are an extremely large amount of websites that can help you with this.
-What taxes are: I was taught this in 8th Grade, also if you didn't know what taxes were even before then, then you're pretty stupid.
-How to vote: I was taught this in 8th Grade civics, and if you can't figure out how to check a box then you're an idiot.
-What political parties are: again 8th grade Civics, plus it's been discussed in about all my high school history classes.
-How to write a resume: taught in 10th and 11th grade English
How to write a check/balance a check book: I'll give you that. But I don't really see why it's the school's responsibility to teach you that.
-Anything to do with banking: I learned in 10th grade Trig about how to calculate interest. Banks run off interest. What else do you want to know?
-How to do loans for college: Any competent Guidance Office would be glad to show you how to do this, if you would ask them.
-How to jump start a car or other basic emergency things: Why the **** should non-elective classes teach you this? Most high schools offer Auto classes as electives, so if you were to take that you would have been taught.
-How to buy a car or house: Again, why the **** should school teach you how to buy something? And if you can't figure out how to buy something, you're a ******* retard.

The job of the school is to prepare you for a job or college, and offers different courses depending on which path you're going to take. Had you chosen a vocational path during High School, more of those things would have been taught to you.

TL;DR, the school actually DOES teach you half these things, and the other half you should either know by common sense or it isn't their job to teach you how to do in the first place.

My school offered some courses that taught stuff like this, but they weren't required and were difficult to fit into your schedule. Really, those courses with practical applications were sometimes looked at as the easy or slacker classes, simply because the material was "less academic." **** like this should be mandatory, more mandatory than learning a ******* second language. Hell, if you have to take a second language course in America, it should be Spanish. It's the unofficial second language of our country, so why not emphasize that more than anything else?

My mom told me when she was in high school they had more classes that concentrated on everyday responsibilities, such as home economics and something to do with car maintenance and home repair. I guess woodshop is the closest we get to the latter, but learning how to carve wood (as most of my friends opted to do for their projects) isn't as necessary as learning how to fix a sink or change your car's oil.

Maybe academia doesn't want us to be self-reliant anymore because of how large our service industry. Why figure out how to change oil ourselves when we could pay someone to do it? That could be their mindset, I guess. Though it's ******** they don't teach us things like how to apply for student loans or even your FAFSA. I swear, there are so many kids from my school who would qualify for plenty of financial aid because they're poor, but assume they couldn't because they were never high-achievers in school. Though you don't need to be one to make it into community college, which FAFSA would take care of no ******* problem. Ugh. So ******* frustrating.
