LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Fern Creek High School is making sure its students are prepared for the real world with a new class called “Adulting 101.”
According to WLKY, the three day course is for seniors and was created by the school’s college access resource teacher, Sara Wilson-Abell.
When I was in high school in Kaiserslautern Germany back in the mid 1970s, they offered a full semester course called Modern Living that was actually pretty popular. It taught basic cooking, basic vehicle maintenance including how to change a tire and jump start a vehicle, checkbook balancing, how to plan a budget, pet care, smart shopping, basic first aid, and how to clean your house properly among other things. It was one of the few classes I actually attended pretty faithfully.
I thought even as I was taking the class that it ought to be a required course instead of an elective.
