- High school does little to prepare students for the real world.
- One school in Kentucky wants to better equip its students for success.
- On Wednesday, it held an “Adulting Day” to teach graduating seniors practical skills, like cooking and taxes.
- Christy Hardin, director of the BCHS Family Resource & Youth Services Center, got the idea from a Facebook post.
A highs school in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, was concerned that its students were not prepared to enter the real world upon graduating.
So, to combat that, community members came together to teach students practical skills they will need in everyday life,Fox-affiliated WBRC reports.
Wednesday, instead of spending the school day studying things like algebra or literature, graduating seniors at Bullitt Central High School were treated to the school’s first-ever “Adulting Day.”
Christy Hardin, the director of the BCHS Family Resource & Youth Services Center, organised the event for the current senior class.
The students participated in one-on-one sessions led by community members on things like how to cook in a dorm room, manage finances, change a tire, talk to police during traffic stops, and deal with homesickness in college.
Look out, real world! These kids are ready.
