12 Things You Just Don’t See in Schools Anymore… Number 10 Especially!

Classrooms today have changed so much since we were in school!

Every era has a different feel and smell. In our school days, the smells of chalk dust and library books were a real part of our education. Classrooms today have changed so much since we were in school. A few things we wouldn’t miss, but others are a part of our memories in big ways, even the little things! Here a few of the things we did in school that simply aren’t a part of most children’s days now.

12) Learning Baton Twirling

This is still taught at some schools, but it’s not nearly as common. Most girls who learn baton today do so through a private gymnastics studio. This art form/sport was once incredibly common at band performances, school games, and representing the school in parades. It’s a sport on the decline now due to fewer chances to learn it, but also due to the large number of activities available to girls these days. It’s great that girls now have so many choices, but man do we miss those sequined majorette costumes!
