Snowflake teenagers to get lessons on washing sheets and the price of milk.
In order to help teenagers when they leave home, schools will teach them how often to wash sheets, the price of milk, and they will be encouraged to think of meals they can cook from scratch. They will also be taught how to draw up cleaning rotas and how to cope with irritating flatmates at university.
New courses are being unveiled by the Department of Education which examine independent living, managing money and dealing with conflict. The lessons will be aimed at sixth formers.
But the campaign for Real Education thinks that the government is encouraging teenagers not to cope. All schools and colleges will be able to run the sessions from September with year 12 and 13 pupils aged 16-18.
