Things that help society + quality of life of everyone:
Math - Builds problem solving strategies
Not really, learning maths helps you do more advanced maths, and eventually advanced sciences. But it builds problem solving strategies in my opinion less than a tongue class, or music (as long as you play something more complex than a drum). In a tongue class, you have to think about words that you don't know, and make a path (phrase) that can makeshift the word.
Science - Climate Change is going to be a big thing + solving world's problems
Science? Science is not one thing, it's 1000+ things, and not all them are useful. Do we really need more linguists? But the branches of physics, chemistry, medicine are all vital, this I do agree on, but don't just lump all the sciences into science
Physical Fitness - Very important to be healthy.
Not really, if you want to be healthy, fine, as you say for music and tongue, teach yourself. It's way easier than music or tongue - read the nutritions.
Music - You can learn this out of school
I don't see what's wrong with music, it's a bit of recreation while developing a skill that many don't have. And you can't really learn it out of school, it's very hard to, unless perhaps you pay for a tutor.
Art - " " " " " " "
I believe same thing to music applies here, though I think it is easier.
English - Auto-correct gets most things, jobs care less and less about how you can write.
Well, English for me, and English for you, are two different things. You need to know English. And it's preferable if you know it at a mastery, to get into any kind of job which is not manual work.
History - You should learn how your country works, and it's history. Learning about where gunpowder was invented (China), or how the Egyptians mummified is not going to improve society a bit.
You're for nation centric history? Disgusting, the history best to learn about is world history, and international affairs, not what the Qazaq dog hunters of the 1800s. And government is not history - it's Government. But otherwise, I agree.
Spanish/Whatever - Want to learn a language? Duolingo while doing whatever > Spanish class.
Duolingo does not have many important tongues (but don't worry, Irish and Esperanto are there!) like Mandarin or Japanese, and even they advertise themselves as applicable to half a year in university. That's not enough to learn a tongue. A tongue class beats Duolingo by miles.
The way science is taught it is rather tasteless.
Science is spicy and sour. Science is sweet and bitter. Science is sharp and soft. Mainly since science does not exist, there's 1000+ sciences. If that's the way you learned physics, in science
, then it had so much taste that your mouth exploded and you were left without taste.
English class may not be exactly useful (gee, i know how to write an analysis of rhetoric in an essay, great) but I'll be damned if the vocabulary i learned in such a class, the storytelling skills and etc don't consistently help my person.
Fine-tuning your tongue is important and helpful. They make you sound smarter, or better to the audience, they help you make speeches, so on.
History is important. If people don't see how things were then, they don't understand why things are how they are. And as the world becomes more and more globalized. ...
Sociology and psychology are the best things that can help you predict things, not history. History is very unimportant, why do you need to understand why things are how they are
? I bet you couldn't tell me what a photon does, but you're using very very many at this nanosecond.
English : auto-correct
Your English comes handy in Nab , wath TV Gdohrapy musix
. Autocorrect is very far from being good and there are some problems that it will never be able to solve. If you speak like, then noone takes you. You got to know how to write for your audience, this is necessary.
Languages : Use Google translate
There are several online translating engines, but there is only one result: Crap that is quite wrong grammatically, and often incoherent.
Sports : Nab , wath TV
They teach sports at your school? Well, it's bit of pop-culture, I guess I see the grounds for that, and if you mix statistics with that class for betting, that could actually be pretty cool, to engage some students.
IT : WTF am I learning this! I have a fucking PC!
I don't think you are in this class. It's not the computers' past, it's about how to build everything you use on it. Programming is a very growing field, and let's say Fizzer has the same attitude as you, well, you don't get to waste away your life here anymore, or on any video game, if your attitude is that contagious.
Gdohrapy : Google maps
No internet access? Trying to find the best shipping routes? Trying to find a cool place to visit? "Google Maps" won't help a bit here.
[/quote]Music : I am always learning musix[/quote]
You already know music? What instrument do you play? Name the notes in B minor. Otherwise, you do not know music, and are learning very slowly.
