"Adulting Day" Concept Comes to Kentucky High Schoolers

Linkedin Share

Many of us can still remember the monotonous and bizarre lessons that we learned in high school, many of which left us scratching our heads.

Whether it was advanced calculus, or the history fo Byzantine art, a vast majority of Americans have often wondered to themselves, “when am I ever going to use any of this?”.  I, too, was guilty of such thoughts, specifically in the realm of higher mathematics, (hence the writing job).

To pursue the sentiment further meant to ask ourselves, “what do these kids really need to know”?  Now, a high school in Kentucky is taking the question to heart, introducing “adulting day”.

According to WAVE 3 News, seniors at Bullitt Central High School in Shepherdsville were taught how to cook when they get to college, how to change a tire, and how to pay bills.

“I think that the idea occurred to me, originally, I saw a Facebook post that parents passed around saying they needed a class in high school on taxes, and cooking,” Christy Hardin, director of the BCHS Family Resource & Youth Services Center, told WAVE 3.

The seniors were also visited by local police officers, who advised the young adults on having interactions with law enforcement.

Now if they could only help these children learn how to merge onto the highway in an orderly fashion, we would be getting somewhere.
