Kentucky students learn cooking, taxes and more in “Adulting Day”
SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. – You may learn a lot in high school, but do you learn the things you really need to know?
Sure algebra, Spanish, and chemistry are important, but what about basic life skills?
That was the purpose behind an “Adulting Day” at Bullitt Central High School.
Seniors got intensive one on ones with people from the community who taught them skills that will help them in the “real world.”
Some of those skills include dorm room cooking, changing a tire, balancing a checkbook and lots more.
They may not have learned everything they need to know, but it’s a step in the right direction of being a real adult.
“I think that the idea occurred to me originally, I saw a Facebook post that parents kept passing around saying they needed a class in high school on taxes and cooking,” Christy Hardin, of Bullitt Central High School said. “Our kids can get that, but they have to choose it. And today was a day that they can pick and choose pieces that they didn’t feel like they had gotten so far.”
