What School Should REALLY Teach You

– Do you ever stop what you’re doing in the middle of the day
and just think, I’m a moron. What up, everyone, it’s
your girl, Super Woman. And I’ve been through
years and years of school but I still feel like I
don’t know how to function like a proper human
being in the real world. Like every once in awhile, I have no idea how to do a simple task. Like I literally just walk
past my degree on the wall and I’m just wondering like how the eff do I still get lost in
Ikea every damn time? And how can I never remember
where I park my car? And I never have enough Icloud storage. Mostly because I don’t know what that is. That’s because sometimes, aka
very likely, aka like Monday to Friday, school teaches
kids useless things. I’m just saying, school should prepare you for real world struggles. Number One, Mathematics. I’m lost in a strange
place and my phone is dead, what do I do? Recite your nine times
tables said no one ever. Let’s just be real, most of
the math you learn in school is completely useless in everyday life. Today we’re gonna learn how to measure the circumference of a circle. The diameter of a circle. The radius of the trigonometry. The length of this side of
this triangle, the hypotenuse. Math is also going to include letters now. Okay, math is now pretty little letters. Fall for A. Parabola. Two parabolas, parabola, two parabolas. Acute angles. – Aww, cute. – Trapezoids. – Eh! – And the equation of
this hexagon cole sign parallelogram tangent isosceles. Any questions? And because school fills your head with all these complex
equations when it comes to simple everyday math,
you’re an idiot box. That was so good. I need to like unbutton my pants. Oh thank you. Oh actually can we split the bill? – No sorry, not for parties over two. – Oh. – Bust out your calculators everybody. Who got the steak? – Depends, how much was it again? – What do you mean how much was it? Doesn’t matter how much,
did you get the steak or did you not get the steak? – I honestly think it’s
just like $30 each. – Yo, I didn’t drink. Both of you did. – Also, yeah, you got guac on the side. – Guac isn’t extra. – Guac is always extra, shut your mouth – Does it include tip yet? – No. So we have to tip individually. Let’s just tip individually. Cash, credit card, what are you doing– – Let’s just call it 20 bucks each. – All right, but this includes gratuity. – Okay, okay, I loved that movie. – That’s Ratatouille,
ho, this is gratuity. Boy, you stupid. – Okay, we’re like $80 short. – How? – Because of the tax. – What the hell is tax? – Hold up, I didn’t carry the one. – What’s the standard, is it 13%? – Plus it, divided by two– – Can we get some graph
paper, just can we? If I had a dollar for
every time my friends and I could not figure out the
division of the bill, I would have enough money to
just pay for the whole meal. Because me stupid. Number two: foreign languages. Growing up in Canada,
I had to learn French. (speaks foreign language) So for nine years of
my life, I had to learn this as a second language. So tell me why the
biggest language barrier I have ever faced while
traveling is in France because I had no idea what
the F anyone was saying. Why you ask? Because … (speaks foreign language) Welcome to your first day of French class. Today we’re going to learn
all about pizza toppings. How to conjugate the verb to jump. (speaks foreign language) Today’s lesson, circus terms. (speaks foreign language) (speaks foreign language) No no. (speaks foreign language) (speaks foreign language) (speaks foreign language) – How do you say, I need help? – You know what they
should teach you in school? How to understand foreign languages you will see in your daily life. – Wait, can you park here? – It says I can park here
between noon and three. – Okay, so you’re good. – Oh wait, but it also
says not on Mondays. And on days that have a T in it. – Think you’re good. – Also not during street cleaning
or during a quarter moon. – I think you’re good. – And by permit only at 5 p.m. – We’re good. – And I think it’s a tow
away zone on Saturdays. – We’re still good. – Okay, dope. Oh no wait, forgot my phone. What the F? Reading parking signs 101. I’m just saying, this the
type of education we need. (speaks foreign language) Worksheets. You don’t know what
frustration or inner turmoil is in life unless you’ve had to cut out those geometric paper shapes
and glue them together to make 3D shapes. You know exactly what
the F I’m talking about with the effin’ tabs and
the effin’ gluestick. I just can’t, I’m sweating,
I’m literally sweating just thinking about it. In today’s day and age that
whole process makes no sense. All right, students, now
today I want you to cut out these shapes and then
glue these shapes together to make 3D shapes. It’s important you learn how to do this because 3D printers will never exist. And then I want you to answer
questions about the shapes. – What if I already know how
many sides are on a cube? – Make the cube. – I can literally just
count the sides of the cube without building it. – Make the cube. – I’m done with my sphere. – Hey, make the cube. Instead of giving me worksheets
full of mindless work, teach me how to work
with sheets in real life. (upbeat music) (screams) Number four, dress codes. Now I’m gonna be straight up. The only dress code I had
in my school growing up was no gang signs. Yeah, that should put a lot
of things in context for you. But today dress codes in schools
are absolutely ridiculous and not at all a good reflection of what the real world is. Class as you can see,
this young lady’s skirt is one inch too short
and I’m not woke enough to realize this dress code
is sexist, so, go home. Tuck in that shirt, young man. Pull up those pants,
sir, this isn’t a yolo. Hey, no hats. Looks like your top is one
centimeter above your mid drift. We don’t want the male students to lose focus, now do we? Schools you have failed as educators if you drill a dress code
into your students’ minds and then they graduate
and after they graduate they get invited to events. And they still don’t know what the F is appropriate attire to wear. Hey, so what’s the dress
code for the event tonight? – [Man On Phone] Business casual. – Like a pant suit? – [Man On Phone] Nope,
just nice and casual. – Like jeans? – [Man On Phone] No, more business casual. I’ll see you there! – K. Business casual. Hello, I’m business casual. Oh, hey, hi me? I’m business casual. What’s up? Biz cas. Goodday, sir, my name is business casual. That’s what they should teach in school. Okay, I don’t give an F
what to wear in math class. Tell me what to wear to a wedding. To a meeting, to a social,
also, what the F is a social? Since when is social a noun? First of all, what, what, what? But real talk, can I
just be real with you. I know how school feels. Everyone going back to school. It is true, a lot of the specific things you learn in school, you will
never ever use in your life. But hear me when I say, you
will use the time management, social skills, the work ethic skills. All the life skills
you learn through being in that environment, you will learn. So you know what? Tough it out, figure out the
God damn hypotenuse, okay? I promise it’ll be worth it one day. Kill it, hustle hard. Oh you you, stop stop,
you watching right now. Before you go anywhere,
don’t even think about, thumbs up the video, don’t even. If you wanna watch more
videos like this one, right over there, my daily vlog channel behind the scenes all that
stuff right over there. Make sure you subscribe
’cause I make new videos every Monday and Thursday

  1. WUDDDDUPPPP FAM?! Am I the only one who feels like schools need to teach more realistic life lessons?! LET ME KNOW! Also, #SuperSixty starts now! Which means I'll be responding to your comments below for the next 60 minutes! And GO! xo

  2. Actually guys not all the things on this video is true

    For example

    Math we use everyday you might not know but shirts are math couches clothing people who build houses and things like your house or a building

  3. 2:27 exactly that’s why you need to know math so you can solve it if you can’t solve it how are you gonna pay it’s like having cereal and milk but not a bowl or a spoon

  4. 2:58 you can have a job from that because you can become a translator to people needing help or you can use it for good

  5. School should really teach about love, I mean if nobody learned how to love in the world, nobody would know how to enjoy their self, for example, you have to LOVE in order to have self CONFIDENCE. you have to LOVE to build a life. AND PLUS, you need to love in the world. What if you see someone you like? What are you gonna do, are you be like, will you be my 1+1 = 2???? Like, no- it dosent go that way, you need to find WORDs for love. It isn’t that easy. So that is why I think school should teach love, it’s kinda a important thing in life.

  6. I agree with you specially on the foreign languages part because when I first moved to the USA I didn’t know how to speak English but I had to learn and I. Class my teacher would do the same thing

  7. To be honest school should kinda teach about things in life like how to prepare for stuff in life is what I mean like at 13 prepare to be teen 11 hormones (just in my opinion)

  8. Languages actually increases our creativity and focus. Mathematics(yeah) is needed in real life and those high calculations is what is needed in machinery(ik not everyone has interest in machinery)

  9. (2019 September and ik I’m late to comment dis but I just thought of it) There’s 2 type of people, people with a huge sense of responsibility, and the other people who think they have a huge sense of responsibility, but are actually lazy.

  10. me back to school: yay I cant wait to see my friends and learn about my new teacher

    me during school: I'm so tired time for bed
    [ lays down]
    [ alarm goes off]
    me on the last day of school: I'm going to miss yall
    oh I forgot im moving
    [ fake cries]

  11. I have to we’re a polo and kayaks to a public school , I was also getting made fun of wearing a bandanna even though it was worn as a headband and for weeding a pure for cough reasons so that is going on and all I have to do is ignore it yay

  12. They actually taught us how to do sheets in school 😂 we went on a residential and they made us make our own beds even though we were 8 😂

  13. I am from Germany and hey I am learning 4 languages and I am able to speak English without an accent. French is easy as Latin for me

  14. It is supposed to be a home and school collaboration for learning. That sheet example, that is something to learn at home, as is cooking, cleaning, etc. School is mostly for acedemics, the rest should be taught by parents/guardians.

  15. You know how people say that the next generation will ALWAYS be smarter than the previous and that's true so why is the smarter generation being taught by the previous generation?

    (I hope you know this is a joke )

  16. I'm so glad I'm done with high school. But tbh, it really was a waste of time in my opinion. I forgot everything I "learned" every year. Now I'm in college and I'm afraid the same thing will happen. How am I supposed to get a job with a college degree if I never remember anything I learned? I feel we should start that earlier on in high school. And dress code was a drag, too. I agree, they should teach us real life stuff. Them "teaching" us, and then grading our success is one of the main things that builds on people's confidence. I'm not good with math, and so every time I take a math test and I fail, my confidence goes down. And it's really like a competition to see who's smarter and who is going to get the best grades. Honestly, it's a load of BS. Especially since most of that stuff isn't important in real life, anyways. Now, I know and understand that people have passions and careers they want to go on doing… But if I don't want to do anything that has to do with math, I shouldn't be taking trig if I want to be an author, stuff like that. Basic education is important, of course. But I think it would be more beneficial if we specialized in our studies in high school, after basic learning in middle school. That way, people wouldn't be in debt, and you don't have to pay. And you don't waste time learning about stuff you won't use as a requirement to furthure your education to get where you want to go. That's just my opinion

  17. At my school if ur shoulders are showing then you are dresscoded
    Edit:Ikr cause lol how are my shoulders disrating. But when I had a dress that showed my shoulders the teachers didn’t care?

  18. Okay so my school did teach us dress codes like business casual (literally the olny one they taught on this list), but get this bull…

    They taught it to us in 7th grade. Like what?!? You think imma remember that all the way to when I'm getting a job? Like I get the minimum age for getting a job isn't too long after 7th but still, that's something you oughta teach in highschool. It's one step closer to schools becaoming less completely useless, but still. Whoever made it to be taught in 7th lost their common sense awhile ago.
