    no....

    just because you did learn, does not mean its the same for everyone.

    I dont know much at all..I have no grasp of punctuation..or basic maths.
    I am quite stupid, sadly.

    But after 15 schools , what do you expect.

    I took education studies at uni and learnt that the content of the curriculum is pretty much the least important part of your education. It's all about the 'hidden curriculum' apparently. Although I can't remember exactly, I wasn't paying enough attention lol!

    I'd say that depends on what you want to do after school. If you want to study engineering or Maths at uni then studying high level Maths at school is essential. For example.

    I learnt a huge amount at school. Like a PP, I'm shocked that some people feel they learnt nothing.

    I don't get how you could spend 5 days a week sitting in classrooms and NOT learn anything?? How bizarre.

    no emy, not bizarre.

    Just different. I think the moral is...not all people learn the same way.
    what worked for you, does not work for everyone.

    A great deal, academically, socially and culturally. I had very supportive teachers and a wonderful school.

    I thought.

    I can't speak for Australia as I was raised for a large part in Europe. In the Netherlands we ditched the private schools, healthcare and hospitals a loooooooong time ago.
    Everyone gets the same equal opportunity when it comes to education.
    This is probably why I can honestly say "Yes I learned a lot in highschool".
    I discovered my passion for biology, chemistry and technical drawing in highschool and continued on to make it a profession by studying biochemistry at uni.
    Thanks to life experience gathered after school and uni, I have discovered that I have more passions then just science. I now want to go back to uni to study psychology. I love my volunteer counseling at LifeLine and my mentoring at the playgroup for disadvantaged parents and kids. I would love to turn this into a profession.

    OT, but the Dutch are known for having some of the worlds best scientists. I wonder if this is because of the quality of education they have and that it is accessible for every child, regardless of financial status or religion.

    I went to a regional Queensland (slightly rough) public high school from 1994 to 1998.

    A lot of it was a bit uninspiring, but I guess I learnt the requisite skills as I went straight on to tertiary study without issues.

    I still randomly recall simple algebra when I'm working out problems, despite hating maths.

    I found some teachers were a bit rubbish, but I learnt a lot from the good ones. I had a particularly good English teacher in senior, and I felt I extended myself a lot in that class.

    I was more later 90's but I learnt heaps and really enjoyed it, that is until I decided working was far more better and became a transport allocator for a transport mob.

    In a way I regret not staying in school, but the same time I was just getting too bored with school and working seemed far more appealing.

    Now I am back studying whilst off with DD

    I learned that the world is a horrible place and that unless you are a straight a student you should just be left to rot.
