Like most people I truly believe it's time we start thinking about what we are teaching kids in school. I'm a huge fan of education, and you need to keep learning if you want to be successful in life but I also believe that we are wasting time in class on things you will most likely never use.

H&R Block did a recent survey claiming that the average person only uses 37% of what they learned in high school. They also said that 57% of people say a high school class on money management would have been helpful. And 44% of people explain how filing taxes would have been something great to learn in high school.

They also released a list of the top 10 most 'useless' things learned in school:

  1. Pythagorean theorem
  2. Knowing PI is 3.14
  3. Periodic table
  4. The types of rocks
  5. The difference between protons, neutrons, and electrons
  6. Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell
  7. Naming the presidents in order
  8. Osmosis
  9. How to make paper snowflakes
  10. Photosynthesis

Other classes I wish were offered include vehicle maintenance & basic home economics.
