    Etiquette should, indeed, be taught in schools because etiquette is, arguably, imperative to developing long, meaningful, successful relationships, be they business or personal.

    It cannot hurt. Good manners are so lacking in this day and age. Too many children are not taught proper etiquette at home. We need more of the Golden Rule. Thank you!!

    Yes, it should be taught in schools because our country is becoming increasingly “uncivil” in the way we treat one another and talk to one another. For example, just watch a TV news talk show and observe how the participants interrupt and talk over one another in the name of “making their point.” Teaching etiquette is a way of showing basic dignity and respect for our fellow human beings regardless of age, creed, nationality, etc.

    I would love for teachers to have the time to teach social etiquette in schools, private or public, but they are under too much pressure to teach the basics these days and there would certainly be no time to teach Dining Etiquette in that environment. I believe these lessons SHOULD be taught from the parents/home FIRST, but it’s a fact that not all children will have that opportunity and not all parents have the skills themselves to teach them.

    Fortunately, there are a number of us that are empassioned to teach the subject of social, business and/or dining etiquette to a variety of ages throughout life in the hopes of making a difference in the lives of many.

    I believe that etiquette should be taught in schools. I feel as though we would be given the gift of integrity and honor from the school systems that we may or may not receive at our home… and if we do receive this sort of good foundational upbringing, then having it taught to us at school simply re-enforces that behavior.

    I feel like we would be more respectful and professional at our workplaces, in school, at home, amongst friends and strangers alike had we had the training necessary to prepare us for the rest of our personal, business, and social lives.

Have something to add?
