>>1071839 I took this one economics class my senior year of high school and holy shit. We learned all kinds of shit. Advertising, supply and demand, business tactics, trading and selling stock, the housing collapse and i even read one of the teacher's books called Ishmael. That single book taught me more about philosophy, culture, history and religious brainwashing than anything else. IN ONE BOOK. I can thank that book for how athiest i am now and holy fuck im glad im not religious. I wish i could go back to the high school and talk with him more after school but i think that would be too creepy and they'd probably ask me to leave.
Two new languages (3 if you count shitty Latin) Math skills that I thought I'd never need again but then actually did History and basics of Economy Time Management and how to study properly Rules of basketball and football
im not gonna deny that i got some fairly decent basic education in school, but here are some life lessons my time in school has taught me. - looks, personality and a good relationship with your teachers are more important than your actual performance. - grades are always negotiable - cheating is fine as long as you dont rely on it to pass tests - people that have authority over you will try to fuck you over in every way imaginable if they cordially dislike you - in a "you or them" situation, dont have moral scruples, your fellow students would fuck you over for a better grade too - make sure you get credit for the work you have done - keep controversial opinions to yourself, tell people what they want to hear if disagreeing with them will put you at a disadvantage - take some time in the morning to revise and recall what you have learned the day before
How to follow directions. >Knew all about computers from boss-ass grandma working at 3Com since I was a tyke. >Mom had me reading at a fifth grade level before pre-K. >Knew how and when to shut up from being told to wait my whole life. Reading and following the directions instead of sitting there troubleshooting something that's been solved was the only real practical skill they had to left to instill. Also kept me from being the weird, socially-maladjusted homeschool kid.
