Fandango’s Provocative Question (13 January 2021)

Today’s Provocative Question, Fandango asks:

What do you think is the one subject (or thing) that should be taught in school that isn’t?

Common Sense.

You want a longer answer?

Okay, c o m m o n s e n s e .

I could offer a more considered answer, like how the playing field should be totally flat, how no one person is better or worse than any other, but don’t they teach that already?

  1. If only we had school boards with some to start with. If not common sense, then at least a class in critical thinking where learning how to conduct meaningful research is required. I’m all in for your idea.

  2. I answered that way too, but in a lot longer post. And everyone ‘has a level playing field?” Maybe in your country, but over here? That’s NEVER been the case and certainly isn’t taught. If one has money, one gets. If one is poor, one goes without. Equality is a joke, and I have it better than most.
