Maybe it's not your traditional math, science, social studies, or arts and humanities class--maybe it's something different. If you could learn one lesson in school, what would it be?

    Nov 2 2011: I wish I would learned more Sex. Sex should be taught more in the classroom. There should be more open discussions about it. I think kids would benefit tremendously from it.

      Nov 2 2011: I agree and disagree at the same time.

I think the kids should hold the key to conduct the discussion, ofcourse under some what of a adult supervision, which I think you are proposing.
