Am I ever going to use any of this???

25 replies 1 views Edited Jan 24, 2007
Is it me or is the Education System seriously screwed up.
For those of us who know what we want to do for a living, shouldn't we be
excused from classes that will not be needed in our future?
I dont understand it.....

Like if you're going into moving (for an example), why do you need math, history, etc?  (when all you're doing is moving boxes, etc.)

Just wondering, what grade are you in? It helps you in the long run, but some of it does not seem to help.

They just want to cover all bases, so if you decide to follow a career path you'll know the basics. Most people don't know what they want to be, so this is useful. Eeew...I'm defending the school systemSmiley Sad

Well, what if you DO have a career in mind? I'd like to go into law, I am NEVER, and I mean NEVER going to have to know how to factor polynomials (easy **bleep**, but hellichly boring). They should have "fAST TRAK CUREER COARSES ZOMG".

I wish you could choose a career in highschool and just study that.. seriously I don't care about what stars are made of. If I wasn't working in my techroom specially and learning PHP and Javascript from my school i'd go crazy.
