Many "real life" skills are never mentioned in the classroom. But why?

Today on the HOM Morning Show, Nikki and I asked listeners the question - "What do you wish they taught us in school?"

One of the first things that came to mind for me was changing the oil in my car. I still don't know how to do that! I feel like it would have come in more handy to learn that in school...as opposed to, say...algebra!

We got some great calls on this one. Here are a few -

"How to change a tire"

"Cursive writing"

"How to write a check"

"How to write an address"

"Self defense"

"Personal finance"

"How to deal with bullying"

"How big of a responsibility it is to raise children"

"I wish I learned how important retirement was when I was younger. What to do, and what to avoid."

"Things we should have learned in school... typing!! Especially they/we are in the age of computers."

And here's what listeners said on our Facebook page -

What are some of the things that YOU wish they had taught us in school?
