SENSE: Should we have some courses

editorial image

When I was younger, common sense seemed easier to find and hear. To some extent, it was taken for granted.

Now in the internet age, it seems harder to find, and you can make jokes about it, but not take it for granted.

There aren’t courses in it, ending in exams to confirm understanding. I haven’t even heard of there being online training courses in common sense to follow.

But if you were to stop a selection of people in Morpeth on an average day and ask them about common sense, I suspect there would be a collective agreement that we need more to improve our day-to-day life.
