Dawn Hawkins Posted over 2 years ago What's one thing you wish you had learned in school? I would have to agree with more emphasis on the arts. I would have loved to have had the option to learn more about creative writing. I don't necessarily mean poetry, but in fiction. Add o that learning the skills and knowledge to take that writing from the mind to the bookstores. The arts, in all forms were virtually ignored where I attended high school, leaving out a great deal of the dreaming that many others have echoed here. It is one thing to teach a particular skill, but students need to learn how to market those skills once they leave the classroom.
