What classes are missing in school?

Someone just asked me this: if school does not teach students enough, what classes would I add? Here's my response.

I tend to think more about the “delivery” of classes more than the content itself. But, just considering content for a moment, here are some of the gaps in my experience of studying business + CS:

The problem is that people equate content with learning. A course’s name and readings does not on its own infuse students with new ability. Learning is change; school should be optimized for the wholistic evolution of individuals, which requires students to create, not just consume.
