Dave, I have to agree with you.

Grade high and undergrad also tend to teach that there is only right and wrong answers. Life teaches you otherwise, further schooling gives you the equations to "prove" it

My opnion:
School needs to teach kids about real world decision making, and problem solving. I know plenty of people who are booksmart, but can't grasp what is going on real world.

I just recently learned to look at things differently, and how to solve some real world problems. My life has direction, and meaning again. I don't feel lost, or helpless, or down on myself anymore.

Learning that has taken me my whole life.

Now I'm taking what I've learned, and using it to solve my real world problems (school, career, finantial stability, relationship, and everything else that may apply)
