What's one thing you wish you had learned in school?

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 30 2011: if there was one thing i could have learned in school would be the art to dream. To learn how to be conciously aware in the sub-concious state. If we can harness our subconcious through realization, self determination, and connective thought i believe with sub-concious awareness we can provide a better outcome for the future of both ourselves and our childrens childrens. Perhaps we could learn more than wat the surface of waking life has to offer. If there is something we as human beings can share is we dream whether we remember or not. Some of the greatest inventions or train of thoughts come from being in a dream-like state; wat if that could happen simotaniously with the education of dream awareness? or concious awareness in the subconcious state of mind?
