A couple of days ago I went to an innovative session. afterwards we began talking about everyday life.
eventually we concluded that we all would’ve loved to be taught some life lessons in school.One of the people was a homosexual male in his mid thirties.
Back when he found out he was ectualy gay, he had to go to the internet to learn about how people thought of the LGBT community. only, back then, people did not understand.
there were almost no stories about how you could tell your environment. Now we do, but it would be great to have a class that makes room foor a discussion around this topic.
Then you get to know how people in your own environment think aboutit.Personally I would’ve liked to learn about divorse. I know half of my classmates had divorced parents.
But there was a half that didn’t know how that would be. It’s a life lesson.There are so many topics we don’t get taught in school. Like what you need to consider looking for your first house.
How to maintain healthy spending habits. I know young people who never learnt that from their parents, or their parents money habits weren’t healthy.In this class you could invite veterans.
someone from the LGBT community. a grandparent. a business (wo)man. someone who’s struggling with their health, both mentally or physically.
Make room in this class to discuss topics you don’t get to talk about in secondary school. Talk about psychology and philosophy. Talk about ideas you might have to better the world.
discuss the things that absolutely need to change.Long story schort. We need a class that makes us ready to take on the world.
(and the best of all is that your future is your homework)and I’m not talking about sociology classes. presonally the only useful thing I learned there was how politics works in my country.
This goes beyond sociology.
