I have a similar problem with the Education Career. My Sim needs to do the "Practice Lecture" interaction as part of her working from home tasks, but the interaction is nowhere to be found in the friendly interaction sort.

I've tried clicking on several different Sims to find the interaction but it doesn't appear.

I had the same problem. I couldn't directly solve it but you can practice your lecture in front of the mirror and it will count as the desired task.

I have a similar problem with my sim in the education career. She needs to do something on the computer, a task that takes several sim hours, and she will randomly abandon the task to go read a book. It’s extremely annoying because each time I have to start again from scratch, there is no option to “resume” the task. 
This happens with any task that requires spending hours on the computer (write a letter, write grants, etc)
I have to watch her through every minute of the action, at the regular speed, so I can quickly stop her from doing something else. Sometimes I can’t cancel her next random action as it’s almost as if she blinks out of her seat. She’s wasting hours out of her day, and I can’t focus on the other sims in the household. 
I’ve tried locking her in her study so she cannot get to the bookshelf in the other room (it’s always the same book she wants to read, and she’s not even a bookworm or anything), but it doesn’t seem to help

If you tell them to do the same action on the computer twice, they actually don't get distracted and go do something else. They stay doing what you said. It's the only workaround to this glitch I've found.

I have this problem too, but not just with plan lecture. With every stay at home task. I believe the problem started after my sim got to level 6 of her career (administrator) or perhaps it was at level 5. The earlier levels were fine. 

 

No matter if it is plan lecture, faculty meeting, tutoring a student, write grants... She will suddenly up and leave the task to read a book, or put a book back on the shelf. Once she leaves the task all progress is lost, she starts it again from scratch. The only way to make her complete anything is to watch her VERY closely and x out any attempt at another interaction. Or turn off free will. Which I find extremely boring, and should be unecessary. The lack of progress is also an issue with free will - if the computer breaks you're still at scratch when starting the task again...

I notice this thread is a few weeks old but gonna say I'm having the same issue with the Education Career.  I was able to do work from home tasks at first -- and then suddenly every time I start a task on the computer, after a few minutes they randomly get up to read a book. And when I cancel it and go back to the computer, the entire task has reset again.

 

No mods or anything like that. PC.
