i was presented with this question while discussing why we must do away with schooling.
What is minimum essential knowledge?
- how govt works
- how electricity works
- how to fill up forms
- how to file loans and apply for
Schools rarely teach manyof the essential knowledge. We need to know general understanding of what something is. For example, you do not need to sit in a history class to understand basic essentials of what happened in history.
You learn through movies, fiction and storybooks. Memorizing the names of the kings and when they were born is mostly unnecessary.
