Daily Prompt: The New School

Today’s daily prompt is called The New School and it asks;

You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?

OK this prompt is a bit unclear. Do you mean redesign a single school or the education system? If it’s the education system why the hell didn’t you say that? Seriously who just says school like that? Oh I know someone who bloody well needs to go to school and get an education.

Also why the hell would you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? That is the dumbest idea ever. I’m actually speechless at that idea. They are fundamental.  Come on. No matter how much you hated going to school you have to at least acknowledge how important they are.

If you got rid of reading and writing how would you teach the kids anything else? How would you impart these new skills and bits of knowledge to the young minds as the prompt asks. Yeah someone didn’t think it through did they.
