Here are 27 skills a student needs to know, according to zen habits. Any feedback on this?
The interesting thing is we agree with a lot of the list and that is why we started our company. For example, we've always felt financial skills (investing, budgeting, frugality, etc.) are incredibly important and that we've both gotten a leg up because our parents taught us these skills. It's still unfortunate that these skills aren't taught and developed in school, though with (mostly) declining school budgets I can see why administrators aren't rushing to add these classes. I actually volunteered to teach a leadership/teamwork skills class at Galloway and was shut down about a year ago - I was shocked at how the idea was quickly shot down! Oh well... happy readings from vacation (I'll be in and out through July 4th).
