Oh almost forgot! When our teacher was teaching something similar to the pythagorean theory (don't know exactly how it's spelled in english), he asked a random student to read some numbers out loud (big numbers) she pronounced 10500 as ten-five-hundred. When the teacher asked her to say it correctly she didn't even notice it should be ten-thousand-five-hundred....

Haha, had kinda the same thing happen. Two of my fellow students were having an argument during historyclass about why unicorns could have existed.

Also, one time, someone asked whether JFK was the first president of the US... Even though we're not American it's pretty well-known who were the first few...

I was in a social studies class when we were talking about mexico, and got on the topic of soccer. The teacher asked us why soccer was so big, and some girl said, and I quote:

"Is it because they can only afford 1 ball for 20 people?"

Half of the class was latino. Pic related

I have a great story to tell.
In my class there are 2 bouncers, they work at nightclubs and schiphol.
We also have A LOT of foreigners, mostly turkish boys.
A few months ago we were talking in class with our teacher about a big fight that happened the night before, somehwere in our city.

Teacher: Anyone heard about that fight last night at Club X?
Bouncer no.1: Oh yeah, I remember some guy asked me to hold some idiot that tried to come on stage
Bouncer no.2: I saw that, but I was busy kicking someones ass
3 turkish friends: Too bad we kicked yours, bouncer no.2!

Not their exact words, but kinda the same. They basically fought full-out against eachother, they were all 17-21 yr old....And apparently they have done so more than a few times, they did it on a train, 2 times on a station, and a LOT of times at random clubs. And they're all in the same class, and all behaving nicely while sitting there...

In one of my math classes I had a pretty cute female teacher (7.5/10,would bang). One day she was teaching, and for some reason she started moaning as if she was getting some dick. Things certainly got akward after that, and I never figured out the cause of her immense pleasure.....

In a Finite Math class (financesand other basic stuff), there was a girl who asked what she should write in the "name" section of the first test-her name, or the teachers.
We were seniors. She had been in the school for 4 years.

HFW the teacher didn't justify it with an answer.

P.S.- She left the test blank, only wrote the date

It's the lowest grade math in you can take highschool (well in Canada at least), but it actually teaches you the important things you'll need to know later on in life.

Not all of Canada has the same education system. It differs from province to province, you probably already knew this but just to make sure. In Ontario, we have essentials math which is pretty much the same thing.

In England most taxes are automatic, depending in your income, although most self employed people get an accountant due to it being quite complex.

A simple google search and rectify that.

Again, in England, you receive a polling invitation kind of thing, with your name and address, the instructions on how to vote are on them.

You can learn about political parties via their websites, or again, a simple google search. I, myself studied government and politics in my school.

Most CV's or resumes can be made just from common knowledge. If the school taught everyone how to write a CV and cover letter, they would all be the same, and none would stick out from the crowd. A CV is personal to yourself and therefor schools can't really help this.

Anything to do with banking can be done in the bank. Everyone in there is more than happy to help people who are new to it all.

Loans for college or university can either be made through the bank, or said university or college. There are trained specialists used in higher education facilities to help new students with this.

Most fathers know how to jump a car, and I'm sure will be happy to teach you. Again, a simple google search can help to understand this.

To buy a house, estate agent, they'll walk you through the process and help every step of the way, the same with car salesmen.

Dear Tumblr users, stop blaming school for your lack of common sense.

I'd like to just say, some mentors/parents/salesman will help in the way you mean. But there are people out there who will either show you the wrong or broken way, or salesman that will mislead you into paying more money. I think schools should just present more options in the way of preparing you, my school has a class that teaches almost all of this but barely anyone has heard about it.

Let me get this straight. In your high school, they did not teach you what political parties are?? They did not teach you what taxes are?

Is that a common thing??

It surely would explain a LOT of discussions I've had on the Internet where I thought "Did that dude sleep through high school?"

In my school you have your core classes that were essentially what they are complaining about, but you had the choice of 4 other elective classes which have a large range of classes you can take. Many people though choose fun/easy classes over those which actually will help them in life.

In my state it just became a requirement that schools teach it, but before last year it was not required. Because of this a lot of students went through high school not taking the classes that taught this since they didn't have to. The schools generally offer courses in it though, even if people choose not to take them.

I honestly agree with this post. It might be stupid as hell but I actually never learned anything about Taxes, Loans, banking, ect. in school and now that i'm a college student it's all screwing me over. School is supposed to help set you up for the real world/ future.   
   
I really feel like 60% of my high school education was a waste.

This is seriously one of the stupidest ******* posts ever.

Some thing you learn as you go and your parents can help you with. How the **** do you not know what taxes are? How do you not know how to vote? You should learn what a political party is in any form of social studies class. Balancing a checkbook is the process of adding and subtracting. WOW ******* OUT OF THIS WORLD DIFFICULT. As a matter of fact, we learned how to balance checkbooks IN 4TH GRADE at my school.

And the Pythagorean Theorem is commonly used in carpentry and construction to ensure that a 90 degree is angle is being made.

Seriously. Its not always about the actual material of the lesson but you are learning problem solving skills and developing cognitively. You learned how to read by reading fairy tales and **** but you definitely dont apply those lessons today.

See, the I never really use the pythagorean theorem when making things 90 degrees. We just use the special triangles, which of course you can figure out from pythagoreans theorem, but it is easier just to remember it as 3, 4, 5. A proportion where if one side is 3 inches, feet, yards, meters, centimeters, whatever the hell you want to measure it in, or a factor/multiple of it and the other is 4 of a comparable factor/multiple, then the diagonal will be 5 of the comparable factor/multiple. No need to waste time doing the actually math once ou have that.

Yea, thats all good if your measurements are multiples of 3, 4 or 5. If its not, then youd at least have to make ratios and have the prior knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem to understand it would work.

Your point is completely moot.

Jump starting a car: The instructions are actually on the jumper cables. Then again, I was taught by a middle-aged, creepy stranger who asked my mother and I for a jump several years ago.

"Lemme show you how to do it, kiddo, so you'll always know."

And you know what? I remembered everything that pedophile said.
