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.

Parents are supposed to teach their kids too.

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?"

I actually learned all of that... except the car one. I never learned anything about cars and still know nothing about them.

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.

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.

Balancing a checkbook is basic math. You don't need to learn.

I once had to use the Pythagorean theorem outside of school. It was the most glorious moment of my life.

"How to vote"   
   
Show up to polling place. Vote. Unless you live in Florida, you really should be able to figure it out by yourself.

Whats with all the people saying '' you have parents for that?"

I have none and a lot of my friends don't have any either.

Even a lot of the kids who have parents have **** parents who hardly do anything to raise them
