Hi! 👋 I’m Jessa.

I blog daily about life, work, and the future.

I wish schools taught us how to learn

Written in


Here’s a list of some of the things I wish were taught in grade school:

  1. Driving
  2. Cooking/Baking
  3. Negotiation
  4. Leading people
  5. Budgeting
  6. Coordination

But it’s the learning how to learn, which I consider the most essential thing that grade school should’ve taught us. Why push so many facts like the who and when if we can now search them over the internet? Schools could do better by teaching us how to think instead.

And because the internet is now the keeper of information, schools do not need to hammer information to students and tell them to regurgitate everything back to them. Instead, what we need are people who know what questions to ask and provide answers with.
