Laundry, questioning beauty ideals: Hesse school introduces new subject for students with “Fit for Life”

“We learn not for life, but for school,” wrote Seneca around 62 AD, criticizing the Roman philosophical schools of his time. But the phrase “We learn not for school, but for life” is also often used. At the Taunus School in Bad Camberg, Hesse, an innovation is now being implemented based on this motto.

According to “rtl.de”, they have introduced the new elective subject “Fit for Life”. In this elective subject, students learn skills for adult life such as doing laundry, filling out transfer forms, and filling out tax returns.

“Exciting preparation for adult life”

“rtl.de” quotes the Hessian Minister of Culture Alexander Lorz as saying, “From practical questions about tax returns to questioning commonly accepted beauty ideals, the elective subject ‘Fit for Life’ offers students an exciting preparation for adult life”.

Subject “Fit for Life” still an experiment

According to the information, the subject is still an experiment. It was selected and developed by the school itself and is offered as a supplement to traditional subjects such as math, German or biology, as reported by “rtl.de”. Whether the subject will be introduced at all schools in the future is still open.
