Open Discussion: What subject should be added to high school curriculums?

Our schools could use several subjects in the curriculum,  such as, oh cooking classes! ^_^ I was lucky enough to be in a school where such a class was offered, and wow… It’s incredibly useful! (Everybody eats, ya know.)

However, if I could pick only one subject to add, that would be self-defense.

A good self-defense class teaches you more than fighting. It teaches you how to handle less-than-ideal situations, like getting a flat tire on the highway. It also teaches you to be aware of your surroundings and what to look for.

This is another class I was blessed to take, but it was in my junior year of college. We only spent 2 weeks on “combat,” and the rest was on boosting self confidence and learning the other things I mentioned. ^_^ In one class we took time to just yell. Why? Because most of the students (myself included) had never yelled before.

It was the best class I took in both my high school & college career. My only regret is that I didn’t take it sooner. And I REALLY wish it was available to high school students. It’s easy to teach kids to be afraid of the world. It takes more time and effort to teach them how to take control of their lives. But I think it’s worth it. ^_^

How about you? What subject do you think should be added to high schools?


Open Discussions really ARE open for discussion! You can talk about whatever you want! The question is just to spark your imagination. ^_^
