What's Worth Knowing?
People have their own opinions on what is worth knowing. In my opinion, a lot of the knowledge that is worthy is not taught in school. The core classes, like math and English teach you to succeed in career. However, they don't teach you how to make it through the everyday life. To some people the important things to know are the things that are useful in difficult times in life. Like said in the poem, knowing what to say to a person dying isn't taught in school. This is a time that almost everyone has to face at least once in their life. The response to dying person would be very useful and worth knowing. Knowing how to cook is knowledge worth learning. If you go to college and dorm, you will save a lot of money by cooking instead of eating out everyday. Survival skills are also another thing worth knowing. For example, knowing that when you are in a blackout if you have a gas stove or fireplace they can still work. To light the flame on the stove you turn the gas on, take a lighter and light it. I think survival skills are one of the most important things to know. Most people don't know what's worth knowing until you need the information.
