We learn a lot from our school. The value system, most of our learnings are due to our schooling.
It is the most crucial phase of our lives but we even learn a lot of things after we are out of the school. It is the time when one learns mostly through experiences.
On Tuesday, Industrialist Harsh Goenka who remains quite active on Twitter, asked “What is that one thing that you wish you were taught in school (which you weren’t) ?”
It elicited a flurry of responses from users.
The users reply in response to Goenka’s question were interesting suggestions to what should be taught at school level.
