In Bill Gates' Book for high school and college graduates, there is a list of 11 things they did not learn in school. In his book, Bill Gates talks about how feelgood, politically-correct teachings created a full generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this education set them up for failure in the real world.
在比爾·蓋茨寫給高中畢業生和大學畢業生的書裏,有一個單子上面列有11項學生沒能在學校裏學到的事情。比爾·蓋茨在書中談到讓你感覺良好的 "政治上正確" 的教導培養出一整代不知現實為何物的年輕人,這種教育只能導致他們成為現實世界中的失敗者。

The 11 things are:

  1. Life is not fair, get used to it.
  2. The world won't care about your selfesteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
  3. You will not make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.
  4. If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.
  5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.
  6. If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about our mistakes, learn from them.
  7. 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 save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try "delousing" the closet in your own room. 
  8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
  9. Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
  10. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
  11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
