Do you agree in the statement that goes, "The most important lesson can't learned in class."? My answer for that would be "Yes".I think the most important lesson that students should learn is dealing with life. I just learned academic lessons in school such as math, science, history, arts so forth and so on. It doesn't teach further about life. How about you? Have you learned the most important lesson in class? Do you agree or disagree to the statement above?

My opinion is same as yours.Every lessons are not taught in the class rooms at school,instead, every now and then this important things are taught by the environment in which we are living and people around us.But at schools we to come across different kinds of people,for instance,the teachers,classmates,seniors,or other staffs, for the first time of our life,we learn many things from them,in other way.In this way,we started to deal with our life.

Exactly, so there are many geniouses who are not that smart when it comes to life. Sometimes, they can be fooled easily. Oftentimes, they are also foolish when it comes to love.

I totally agree that the most important lessons are not learned in the classroom. Like most people I know, I can't remember most of what I learned in high school or even college, but what I do remember is what I learned outside of school. The whole point of college is not to retain every bit of info you are given in class but to learn life lessons both in and out of the classroom.

Yeah, and learning is more receptive if we are self- motivated. I could say that I just credit 40% of my learning from school.

I agree with that statement. Classroom teachings should be used as a stepping stone, the really important things you jave to learn by actually doing them

I would have to agree. Mind you, "classroom" learning is important. But there are some things - IE, "life" - that you can only learn by DOING.

I agree, somebody might tell us about their life experiences but we seldom absorb it meaningfully.

I agree. The most important lesson can't be taught in class. It's a life-long learning: we observe, we learn, we unlearn and relearn. from M. Twain : "It's not what we know that gets us into trouble. It's what we know for sure that is not so." :)
