11件学校里学不到的东西 
 
 
 


    
 



 


在比尔﹒盖茨的书中,他谈到自我感觉良好与思想正确的教育创造了一代毫无现实感的孩子,还谈到了这种教育给他们带来的失败。在这里,比尔﹒ 盖茨罗列了一些孩子们在课堂上学不到的东西。
 
In his book,Bill Gates talks about how feel-good,politically correct teachings have created a generration of kids with no concept of reality and how this sets them up for failure.Here is a list of things Gates says our kids are not learning in school.
 
 


第一条:生活并不公平,去适应它。
 
Rual 1:Life is not fair,get used to it.
 
 


第二条:这个世界不会顾及你的自尊,却希望你在自我感觉良好前有所成就。
 
The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.The world expects you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
 
 


第三条:刚走出高中校门,你不可能一年挣到4万美元。你不会成为配有轿车的副总裁,直到你挣到两者为止。
 
You will not make﹩40,000 a year right out of high school.You won't be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.
 
 


第四条:如果你认为你的老师太苛刻,当你有了老板你等着瞧吧!因为他是无限期任职的。
 
If you think your teacher is tough,wait until you get a boss.He doesn't have tenure.
 
 


第五条:烙汉堡包不会有损你的尊严。你的祖父母对烙汉堡包有不同的描述;他们叫它为“机遇”。
 
Flipping burgers are not beneath your dignity.Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping;they called it” oppourunity.”
 
 


第六条:如果你身处困境,你的父母并没有过错,所以不要对自己的过错发牢骚,要冲中吸取教训。
 
If you mess up,it's not your parents fault,so don't whine about your mistakes,learn from them.
 
 


第七条:你还没出生时,你的父母并不像现在这样令人厌烦。他们是在支付你的账单,洗刷你的衣服,倾听你说自己有多残酷的过程中,才变成这样。所以,在从你父母那一辈子的寄生虫中拯救雨林之前,试着把你自己的房间壁橱里的“虱子”驱除了吧!
 
Before you were born,your parents weren't as boring as they are now.They got that way from paying your bills,cleaning your clothes,and listening to you talk about how cool you are.So before you have save the rainforest from the parasites of your parents'generation,try “delousing” the closet in your own room.
 
 


第八条:你的学校或许已经没有胜者和败者之分,但生活中还有。有些学校已废止了“不及格”制度,他们尽可能多地给你寻找正确答案的机会。但在现实生活中,却丝毫没有与之相似之处。
 
our school may have done away with winners and losers,but life is not..In some schools they have abolished failing grades they give you as many chances as you need to get the right answer.This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
 
 


第九条:生活不分学期。你没有暑假可以休息,并且很少有老板有兴趣帮助你发现自我,在属于自己的时间里去发下自己吧!
 
Life is not divided into asemesters.You do not get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself.Do that on your own time.
 
 


第十条:电视不是真实生活。事实上,在现实生活中,人们不得不离开咖啡馆回到工作中去。
 
Television is not real life.In rear life people actually have have to leave the coffee shop and go get jobs.
 
 


第十一条:友善的对待卑微之人。因为可能碰巧你会为他工作。
 
Be nice to nerd;chances are good you' ll end up working for one someday.
