    Nov 30 2011: I really wish I had had the chance to do basic construction skills at school instead of home economics. I have always wanted to be able to fix things myself and life skills should include self sufficiency in all areas. Yes we can teach innovative learning in schools and ensure that children learn to be social networkers in this digital literacy world but hey how about being able to build your own home, an eco friendly home at that!
