LIFE SKILLS: 

THERE ARE 11 AREAS OF LIFE THAT EVERY CHILD SHOULD HAVE THE CHANCE TO LEARN ABOUT & BE REQUIRED TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL THAT WILL IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER BE BENEFICIAL TO THEM:

1: CULINARY ARTS: Every student should be required to learn to cook and critique different dishes in addition to learning how to make them. (Religious and Medical Exemptions should be allowed and not prevent a student from graduating.) 

2: CULTURE: See www.davidmonlux.com/cultures for what should be included. 

3: DRIVING/BOATING: Every student (depending on area) should learn how to drive a car, operate a boat, use apps such as Uber, hail/call a taxi and or navigate the subway in order to graduate. Each school should be granted autonomy in carrying out this requirement. 

4: ENVIRONMENT: Below is the chart of what should be taught: To see the reasons behind them visit https://www.davidmonlux.com/environment 

MAJOR FOREST OF THE WORLD & THEIR OXYGEN SUPPLY

Teach the importance of oxygen to breath, the minimum required level for human existenance at the present and future projected population rate while pointing out the remaining forest left. 

DRILL BABY DRILL EFFECT

Teach that oil and natural gas is a limited resource that will one day run out just like humans will one day die from sin. When it runs out it is gone and everything transport/comfort wise the current economy is centered around will be no more. If alternatives aren't developed, the future is bleak when these resources run out. 

RISING SEA LEVELS & ARCTIC POLAR CAPS MELTING

Teach how the melting of the ice caps in the polar regions will cause future sea levels to rise and endanger coastal cities including New York (Wall Street), Florida, Cuba, Cancun and Copa Cabana. 

MODERN DAY LUXURIES LOST & ALTERNATIVE FUELS IN THE WORK

Teach how chocolate will be endangered among other things. Then go on to teach about the current progress made under solar, wind, water and other fuels. 

5: FINANCIAL LITERACY: There should be 6 key areas of Financial Literacy Taught: 1: Government Budgeting. 2: Higher Education & VO Tech Comparison Cost. 3: Investments/Wall Street.  4: Loans & Interest. 5: Personal Fiance Class. 6: Tax Filing.

6: FOREIGN LANGUAGE: Every child should be required to take a foreign language in primary/elementary school-high school.  However instead of letter grades being associated with the class, no grades should be given and each child should be allowed to continue learning foreign languages. (Native American tribes/schools may replace the foreign language with Native Language)

7: GENDER: is an important topic and I look forward to future discussions about it on the campaign trail.

8: JOB PLACEMENT: Every student should learn what jobs are available in the field they want to go into in addition to reading job advertisement sections of newspapers and online job search fights while learning the differences in different types of recruiters.
