So I made a We the People petition.

I dunno, the idea just struck me.

We petition the Obama Administration to:
Push for the inclusion of real-world-relevant subjects in public education.

One of the more troubling patterns that has emerged in recent years is one of ill-prepared teenagers entering the real world after high school with no preparation for certain basic aspects of adult life, such as:

—Applying for work, filling out a resume, or presenting oneself properly to impress in a job interview

—Signing a contract or lease

—Managing bills, bank accounts, and generally responsible behavior with money

These subjects are complex and subjective, and we don’t believe that they can be covered one hundred percent in a common education course, but we firmly believe that if presented with the basics our young adults will emerge into the world far better prepared to deal with their own situations than they currently are.

I’ve seen the idea floated around quite a bit, but as much as people like to complain, there seems to be a prevailing attitude that one person griping can’t actually effect any change.  So, why not a whole lot of us griping?

Add your name, spread this around, let’s see what happens.
