Do you think Drivers Ed should be brought back as a mandatory class in High School?
Driver’s Ed was an elective when I was in HS. My folks made me take it to lower their insurance. In retrospect, it was the best “prepare you for real-life class” out of the whole curriculum.
However, when my kids got to HS it wasn’t offered any longer. Not even as an elective. The only way they could get Drivers Ed was as a summer class, which I would have had to pay for out of my own pocket. Considering I only made $10,000 a year, gross, at that time, it just wasn’t an option.
I think it should be a mandatory class. I also think they should have lessons that involve simulation driving machines. Throw those kids into real situations…in a safe environment. What say ye, O Fluther?
Um…can you tell I spent part of the day watching this ?!
