In school you are taught to write long wordy essays. In the real world we are taught to be concise and to the point when writing emails or documents. amirite?

Well yeah that's cause essays are completely different than emails. But your point still kinda stands. Teaching us how to write essays isn't terribly useful

My favorite example of this was a manager that asked me to review an email...EMAIL... he was sending that was like 7 pages long.

I reduced it to three sentences.

Factos 👍🏼

It's much more difficult to be concise and be under a word / page count than to be over when you are older.

Most of the stuff they taught us in school has little to no real world application

Because you decided not to further your education and go into an academic field

Yeah so like I said no real world application. Only in the artificial environment that is academia lmao

All of human society is an artificial environment, and school isnt meant to prepare you for unskilled, menial labor (well, there is the argument that its teaching obedience is)

Yeah they're basically training everyone to be a writer that gets paid by the word when they should be teaching us how to communicate more effectively
