Why is Ada Lovelace not on the school syllabus? Learning about interesting scientists and inventors in history lessons would be much more fun than killing the enthusiasm of students by studying the same two wars for years and years.
Other things that should be on the school syllabus:
- Cooking realistic meals for one.
- Managing tax, bills and finances.
- General DIY
- Basic Car/Bike Repair
These subjects shouldn’t be graded in the normal way, because the focus should be on encouragement of hard work, and not on a pointless letter on a piece of paper.
I’ll probably edit this and add some more in the future.
