What I think is missing in education

I find that in this crazy world today, something is missing in schools. I think they should have a psychiatrist go into schools about four times a week for about half hour. They should go into each and every classroom. After the students have been taught how to read and write, after they've studied history and science and math, instead of teaching them about sex they should be taught how to communicate, and how to listen and how to interact. Are psychiatrists the ones to do this? I don't know but somebody needs to do it because the parents aren't and teachers clearly aren't either. So you have kids, with minds not fully developed, acting crazy, indecent, violent, and just plain stupid because they just don't know any better.

What we have now are students who have become educated fools. They do not learn how to use their intelligence. They do not know how to communicate with other people, how to listen to other people from the time they start talking until they are finished what they have to say. I find that a lot of people that I’ve spoken to don’t have the ability to do that. I mean A LOT of people. As they seem to have an answer already in their mind because of a lack of listening to what is being said to them. They pretend to listen and instead think of an answer based on what they think that the other person had said. They form their own opinion without listening to the whole point. The results are that they didn’t quite get what the other had said and misunderstandings arise. And the same often happens in return from the other person and the situation escalates. Before you know it someone is bringing a weapon to school to 'solve' the problem. Everyone seems too busy in their own mind thinking to pay attention to what's really going on around them. So maybe a psychiatrist is the right person to teach kids this stuff. I don't know, but it seems like a lot of common sense built up over hundreds of years is being forgotten or lost along the way.

That's my opinion, and I listened closely to a lot of people before stating it. So there.
