Educated? What Is That?

I am taking a poll, asking you to help me write a section for my new book.

The section begins with a quote from the former Superintendent of Schools (Australia). Here is the quote: “I am convinced that school no longer prepares students for the real world. The world has changed but our schools have not.”–Isabella Adams

What I am asking is that you tell me what YOU think a person must know in order to be ready to leave home and be a successful adult. In other words, what does it mean to be “educated”?

If you will, make a list. Then, if you can, try to prioritize the items.

If you go to the trouble to do this–and assuming I can actually finish the book–I will send you a copy of the ebook for free when it is published. 

Send your list to: 

Excited to receive your thoughts!
