What They Forgot to Teach You at School

The School of Life

Overview

Pythagoras, geology, the periodic table. Once we become adults we look back on our schooling and think 'why on earth did I learn that?' We should also be asking, why on earth didn't I learn this? The true roadblocks in our adult lives seem to test skills that are never mentioned in our years and years of educational training. We're taught about the French Revolution or trigonometry rather than how to choose the right job or how to repair broken relationships.

The School of Life's mission is to teach people how to lead more fulfilling lives through developing emotional intelligence. Through books, films, classes, and products, this organization seeks to help people find connection, self-understanding, and resilience.

Despite coming to understand how much of our education was wasted once we become adults, we continue the same archaic academic cycle over and over again. It's time to break free.

Favorite Quote

"Schooling is sold to us as a preparation for the whole of existence. But of course... it is an education in how to thrive within its own profoundly peculiar rules – with only a tenuous connection to the world beyond."
