Like 90% of what I learned.

The stuff I learned that I actually use in life was probably completed by 4th grade. Everything else only comes up when watching game shows or playing trivia games.

Oh and now explaining it to my kids lol

This made me laugh but only because I agree with you completely.

Sadly, almost everything. Beyond basic math, reading comprehension and social skills, I don’t use anything really that I learned in school.

THe huge majority of us never use anything we were taught in school.  Most of the school curriculum, until you go to college, is pretty much worthless.  

Schools should get back to basics: writing reading arithmetic spelling,  and in this day and age possibly computer/internet
