SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell? The Pythagorean theorem? Of all the things many people say they learned in school, most wish they had learned more common sense lessons. Now, one Kentucky High school is seeking to help students learn more about “adulting.”
Bullitt Central High School hosted an “Adulting Day” on Wednesday to teach students about what they need to know.
According to WAVE 3, seniors in the class of 2019, however, received one-on-one interviews with people from the community – teaching things like dorm-room cooking, changing a tire, credit cards and financing. It was an event Christy Hardin, director of the BCHS Family Resource & Youth Services Center, organized for the students.
Police talked about interacting with officers during traffic stops.
“I think that the idea occurred to me originally, I saw a Facebook post that parents passed around saying they needed a class in high school on taxes, and cooking,” Hardin said. “Our kids can get that, but they have to choose it. And (Wednesday) was a day they could pick and choose pieces they didn’t feel like they had gotten so far.”
