So it’s very important for teachers to give technical education and allow the student to have critical thinking and teach them life skills which will not only help them in their career path but also will help them in the real world college degree is very important but is not that much important if you are not that much very well prepared for the real life.

Problems That The Students Are Facing

Students are working in the same route and everything is going to work just fine. if they study really hard and find a decent job that can manage their monthly expenses will is definitely not the case survival of the fittest is always there in the world.

2. Expectations too high

Students are also expecting niceness and kindness from the world, which is definitely not going to happen because the world is a very mean and nasty place and if you want to survive in this world, you have to be mentally and physically very strong. if you want to meet up with every challenge that is put in front of you.

Why do we have to prepare students for the real world?

No, our students are not prepared for the real world. Since we were kids we are also heard this thing very often that if you get a college degree got a perfect job your dreams will be fulfilled and you are going to live the life to the fullest and every wish will be fulfilled because you have money power and position but one thing that is very lacking in our education department and educational infrastructure that thing is mental toughness as a young person.

Unfortunately, our social skills are not that much developed, especially this thing has been seen in the school or in the high school students that they are not very much socially competent.

5 Things to do for Students to prepare for the real world:

How do schools prepare students for the real world, Know we give 5 things that schools should work on and prepare students for the real world:

1. Develop a good education system

Obviously, it is very important to have a good educational system that supports the student in the time of price BECAUSE Your education system is the basic criteria that what kind of environment your student is going to get and your education system can teach the important skill and also prepare for the work experience or give the world experience to the students or to the high school seniors.

So if we talk about the American colleges the infrastructure is really good as compared to other colleges and other countries learning experience is very high and the career options are also very good because life is going to get really hard after your graduation.

Believe it or not a success and the career part but you are going to choose as a young adult the teacher should play an important role not just giving the academic knowledge about also in giving the learning opportunities and the work base learning to students.

2. Give learning opportunities

It’s very important for the teachers to provide the work best learning and give learners to the world not just slaves to the world because unfortunately most of the high education is not provide the professional skills and valuable skills that are required for career exploration. Teachers should really focus on career learning opportunities and should teach them skills related to

  1. IT
  2. Communication skills
  3. Problem-solving etc

When you are giving and providing valuable skills are learning opportunities to the students not only their confidence will increase but also they will feel financially secure because these skills such as communication and problem-solving are the need by the current generation and time.

If you can do that you are going to add value to someone else life but also you can earn lots of money with these kinds of skills.

3. Allow the students to explore

Give a free hand to the students and allow them to explore their interests and what are the things that they love to do because, at the end of the day, it is all about being happy in this world.

So if a student is not happy doing those boring things that you are asking him or pushing him to do there is no point of that you are getting them prepared for real-world skills because in the real world, that person is going to do the best or meet the best office potential who has that kind of a will power to listen to his heart and go for the beyond his limits.

4. Develop social skills(prepared for the real world)

It’s very important for the teacher to develop social skills such as communication skills because the day if you are not that much listen and talk to the person who standing in front how the hell are you going to sell your product or apply for the job?

If you cannot talk to your clients of yours or do not know the customer needless and what kind of product to your she wants. Very important that a teacher should work on the communication skills because if a student is very much on the front foot to talk to anyone then it is very easy for him to express his ideas or to talk to someone standing in front of him because communication is the first step to impress anyone.

5. Make a  community

Making community means that you have to make up a team who is on the same page as you are and working on the same goals if you have a strong backup for standing and you have a team of those people who are on the same page and working up and know the values and know you and know your interest. 

What kind of things are there which you want from them and what are the changes that you want basically work as a family with you then your life is going to become very easy not just your professional life but also your personal life because you are stress is going to be manageable at the very same time.


To conclude we can say that the teacher should really focus on training the young generations for the real world because the real world is very hard and tough and if you are not that much focused and tough then, unfortunately, you won’t be able to survive in this hypocritical world.

Because there is no room for niceness in this WORLD and the world is going to manipulate you and use your weaknesses and your emotions against you. if you are not that much competent enough or strong enough mentally and physically at the very same time so it’s very important for the teachers to work on the personalities of the students and guide them towards the right direction of the world.

Do you believe that the education system adequately prepares students for the challenges they will face in the real world?
