      Has everyone forgotten home EC class like the high school CLASS baby boomers and some millennial took to learn basic life skills?

      16 year olds today : home ec? What is that? 30+: they teach basic life skills, how to be responsible for your self. 16 yo: you had to be taught to be responsible and then did away with it 🤔

      Don’t forget how the boomers set up a schooling system that values the study of biology more than how to do your taxes, apply for a loan or mortgage, build credit, or code writing.
