>It isn't the school's fault he's too retarded to figure basic life skills out for himself.
This is the part that kind of makes me scratch my head about this edgelord's complaints and it's a common one brought up in this debate;
>School never taught me how to pay taxes
It takes you five minutes to figure that out. There is no point for someone to waste your time teaching you that since anyone of normal intelligence can figure it out themselves without assistance.
Same with first aid, cooking etc.
You shouldn't need school for that. Language and math will help you be able to undertake these basic tasks in your life.
It's like when the retards at my school used to complain that they didn't teach us "life skills" like how to fucking choose and eat food. If you're at that sort of level in life, you don't really belong in a civilized society.
Most of the people staying in school here just end up being as useless as those who leave early. Probably more useless actually, since they live at home and don't get jobs until they're in their early 20's.
It's true. Milenials and Boomers really are more cringe worthy. There are multiple generations prior to them, who AREN'T as embarrassing, and probably plenty who were.
It's not timeless. Many generations looked up to previous generations, many looked forward to incoming generations with promise.
A defining, unifying feature of Millenials and Boomers is that they were both born into extreme affluence and peace and in record numbers. While Gen X is a very small generation with an even lower reproduction rate. Their lack of investment/impact on the world is a noted feature of the generation.
Which could go someway to explaining their lack of cringe worthiness. It's hard to embarrass yourself when no one even notices you are there, essentially.
>>64694973 >Some people don't plan to invest in stock or have kids so his own argument about what to teach works against topics he wants taught. Most people don't plan on using the "quadratic equasion" either. And having kids, paying taxes, the shit you have to do to buy a house don't get taught, but shit like the quadratic equation is. >inb4 u can just google it lol You can say the same thing about the quadratic equation .
>And having kids, paying taxes, the shit you have to do to buy a house don't get taught
They don't teach you how to wipe your ass either.
They teach you how to think, not how to handle basic life skills that a reasonable adult who knows how to think can figure out themselves.
They DO have schools that teach you about basic life skills. It's just that they are reserved for people with learning disabilities. If you can demonstrate you are literally retarded, you can earn an entrance to one if you'd like.
>>64697952 People like you may be content to work at Mcdonalds and try to figure out pregnancy (because its so so hard to understand), but people that want actual careers that get them places in life have a need for stuff like mathematics and biology.
Look, if you were a crack baby or grew up in the third world and illegally emigrated to the first world and worked in your uncle's kebab shop cleaning toilets or something, I understand.
But if you were the product of a working to middle class background in the first world and you had any greater troubles in your young adulthood than spending too much money on drugs and alcohol or relationship issues, you probably ARE suffering from a learning disability or (less likely) have been extremely unfortunate in some regard.
What actual preparation are you even talking about? How to make toast? How to change a tyre? How to iron a shirt? I mean, what gargantuan struggle crushed your entry into adulthood?
>>64698100 >Geometry is useful later in life for people that have actual careers, just as biology, English and yes economics (which you do learn, I guess Cool Rapper Dude wasn't paying attention) are. Stuff like how to cook and how to pay taxes are easily taught by parents.
Funny how he also complains about muh real knowledge while also complaining about history.
They are teaching you critical thinking. All that other shit is life experience. You learn how to pay off a mortgage when you get a mortgage. If you'd paid attention in school you'd have the critical thinking ability required to figure this shit out for yourself.
>Protip: I made unintelligible posts and am too embarrassed to clarify my idiotic position, because I don't quite understand it myself and am operating mostly on emotion and lashing out because my feelings were hurt
>You know what I never learned? How to pay a mortgage! >You don't know how to use online banking? You don't know how click the "pay" button or set a continuous direct deposit on your phone app? >Nope! I'm a retard! >We should get a divorce
>FUCK YOU SCHOOL. NOW MY WIFE IS MARRIED TO SOMEONE WHO CAN TIE HIS OWN SHOES AND BRUSH HIS OWN TEETH AND I'M ALL ALONE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO SET AN ALARM ON MY PHONE AND CHANGE THE LIGHT BULBS IN MY ROOM. IT'S BEEN DARK FOR NEARLY A WEEK NOW AND I KEEP WALKING INTO THE WALL AND YOU DIDN'T TEACH ME HOW TO PUT ICE IN A BAG ON A BUMP ON MY HEAD TO REDUCE SWELLING
>>64698021 Parents teach you how to wipe your ass. That's not the schools responsibility. The same goes for paying taxes and all that other life stuff. The problem is that schools push too much responsibility on the parents and vice versa. So the kids ends up with knowing nothing that seems viable to real life.
The problem isn't the education system, it's communication with the education system.
Also most parents don't know how to put on a condom or teach their kid that or how to do their taxes because their parents were shit at it.
>The problem is that schools push too much responsibility on the parents and vice versa.
All of the responsibility should lie with the parents. State schools are a luxury. They're designed to help fill in the gaps so that society isn't plagued with complete idiots, but a child is fundamentally the responsibility of their parents, and later themselves.
>Also most parents don't know how to put on a condom or teach their kid that or how to do their taxes because their parents were shit at it.
My parents never taught me that. I learned it "myself", like most other adults in my society, because I'm not a complete moron.
I put myself in quotation marks because the state and private resources are abundant to teach you how to undertake these tasks. So someone IS teaching you. Just not in high school, where doing taxes is irrelevant to you.
how about learning this shit on your own if you give such a fuck about it? it doesn't take more than a week to learn the basics about economy and banking. hell, banks are even helping young people on those subjects, because THEY KNOW that young people have no knowledge in this field and are scared
also this "le i dont no need no algebra at my work, why have i do it!!?" thought is disrespectful to the max
>Should've included basic financial advice in school
Why? It takes you a minute to google the necessary resources, and a few hours to read up on them yourself. If that.
There are a million and one resources on basic financial advice.
Frankly it's pointless teaching something that is self evident and will be ignored anyway. Just like dietary education, most people who aren't literal retards already know what is right and what is wrong, and choose to ignore the right decisions anyway.
It's like a fat woman stuffing her face with cake saying her obesity is because they didn't tell her to eat less calories in school.
>Man, if they had taught me basic financial advice in school, I wouldn't have maxed out my credit cards on clothes and electronics I couldn't afford, and then taken out a loan I knew I couldn't pay back at an absurd interest rate to pay back the original debt. It's all your fault school!
The absurd thing is that you don't even need a library. You can just fucking google it.
It boggles my mind that motherfuckers with I.Q's in the double digits are able to teach themselves to read and understand law while in prison, but this fucking idiot can't grasp the concept of prophylactics or how to pay his tax without a paid professional giving him one on one tuition.
School is not for preparing you for living in society, that's what your parents are for.
School is for broadening your mind and exposing you to humanity's knowledge, in Science, Art and History.
The reasons millennials are so butt hurt is because their free state school education was designed to accommodate for the lowest common denominator, and their absentee parents ignored their upbringing and left it for the education system to work out.
>people who hate basic algebra classes are asspained they're not taught financial math in school
Why? You'd just complain about learning that too. Financial math is still abstract concepts and algebra and calculus once you get to a certain point. Kids would still fail the shit out of it and you'd have shitty people complaining about learning things that don't apply directly to their life.
>>64698582 Obviously all the responsibility lies with the parents. The problem is that most parents don't give a fuck and think the school is doing all the work. Or they have no time because they're single parents that have to work two jobs etc. And yes, self teaching is a very good skill to have and everyone should be like that. The problem is that OP's edgelord is the majority of society and can't do a simple Google query.
So what do you want? Do you want more of OP's videos or do you want kids to know how to google shit.
I think schools just should teach you how to Google things. But google wasn't around back in the day. It's a fairly new thing. We got lucky.
>So what do you want? Do you want more of OP's videos or do you want kids to know how to google shit.
That's actually a redundant question. Honestly.
Like >>64698906 pointed out, and has been repeated a few times in the thread, these people are idiots. I mean that in the literal sense and not as an insult.
They already DO have remedial classes that teach basic life skills and how to function in society for these people...And these people tend to fail at those classes too. And even when educated with the necessary information, they fail to apply it in their post school life too.
>We got lucky
Google, let alone easy and frequent internet access didn't exist for me until many years after I left home. I had to use a library instead. It really wasn't much of a chore.
It's a cliche at this point, but Millienials really are horrendously coddled. So they have an expectation that "someone" will continue to take care of them, long after they have left or been pushed out of the nest, and they get extremely angry and upset (like in OP's video) when they find out that that is not always the case. Even if things becoming increasingly easier for people year after year. If they struggle with basic things now, they would have died being part of my generation, just like I would have starved in a week if you had dumped me on a 1800's frontier somewhere on the globe.
>I've been learning so many amazing things in college. I have had multiple time where I was shocked that the information I had just learned wasn't given to me earlier. Example? Did you know that homosexual men have similar sized hypothalamus' as women? The straight male has a hypothalamus about twice as large as the average female, and homosexual males have small ones like females. In simpler words: gay males have differing brain structures than straight males. Vice verse, Lesbians have hypothalamus' about the size of the male hypothalamus (Twice as large than straight women's.)
>Went to a small private school because the public schools in my area were garbage >Senior year the teachers knew I wasn't going to go to college (not a matter of intelligence I'm not an idiot I just had no interest) >They put me in some of the dumb kid/slacker classes >Learned how to make a resume, how to balance a checkbook, apply for loans, perhaps one day create a business plan >Took Speech Class and learned the basics of how to give a presentation >Given Current Events so I actually know politics and government >The kids going off to college got more Biology and Science crap that I suck in
I kinda thought all schools were like this, was my private school actually an exception to this? I'm happy with my school then, too bad they never did Home Ec so I could have learned I would have been happy being a cook sooner.
That's exactly the kind of useless as fuck information that dude is railing about.
Also, I just wanna say that it's pretty embarrassing that a massive life failure like me (26 yo kissless virgin working in a mall) has better life skills than fucks with social lives and who actually give a shit.
