Schools in Kentucky and Georgia are making sure their students are prepared for the real world by hosting an “Adulting Day.”
In Georgia, Lumpkin County High School devoted an entire day to teaching the senior class how to cook, clean and do chores. They even learned how to save a life and iron a pair of pants.
“We’re trying to teach kids real-life examples. So when they graduate, not only are they college ready, but they’re life ready,” said Principal Billy Kirk told WSB.
In Kentucky, graduating seniors at Bullitt Central High School in Shepherdsville, were able to choose which workshops they wanted to attend and could pick three out of 11.
Students learned everything from how to change a tire, cook meals build a credit score, how to responsibly use credit cards and more.
The Shepherdsville Police Department also stopped to teach students how to behave if they were pulled over by a police officer. Members of the Army also discussed potential careers in the military and the realities of army life.
Bullitt Central High School said on their Facebook page they wanted its students ‘to gain more knowledge and skills pertaining to their lives once they leave.’
Do you think all schools should host ‘Adulting Days’ or do you think teaching students these life skills is the parents responsibility?
