With all this talk about what to teach kids in school, we’d like to complain about something which isn’t taught enough, but your kids will surely need later in life. – Traffic Sign Theory. Now, to be perfectly honest, we haven’t exactly surveyed all the schools to determine if each is adequately teaching Traffic Sign Theory, but when was the last time you talked with family about Stop Signs, Railroad Crossings, Yield Signs, and Traffic Lights. I mean, it’s not exactly a subject which comes up at the drop of a hat. But, don’t you think that if you expect your kids to get drivers’ licenses at age 16 or so, you’d at least want them to have a rudimentary familiarity with the old-fashioned Stop Sign. Or should it come as a shocking surprise that someday they’ll have to “hit the brakes?” I think every school should take a moment, pause, and give traffic signs their due. I mean, how controversial could that be?
