Creating a high school class where students can look into the possibilities of the future.
Every high school has a history class. I agree that is is nice to know certain things about our past. I also know that it might be slightly important to know how our countries came to be.
But, I honestly think it is all very pointless. Wouldn't a class based on focusing towards the progression of life and awareness of what we could become be a better investment than teaching us things we don't need to know?
Closing Statement from Paul Elliott
History is interesting, and if it was ever actually used to help us learn from our mistakes, it would be necessary. We do not use it that way though.
Most high school students do not have a care about it. That's why I was suggesting that we make it a choice. Classes for the students future and the future of the people around him should be established. Somethig like a group discussion. They can talk about what the world has to offer them and what they can do for the world. Or discuss interest in career(as a group). This could break them from the disrespect and pointless feeling that they direct towards their teachers. I feel it could also help troubled kids that weren't given a direction. Too many do not know what there could be.
