As a teacher I have to answer this question a lot - "why do I need to know this?! waaah".
Sure, it's unlikely that most of my 15 year old chavs will ever need to know how to use a database or create a computer animation.
The point is, in most jobs there will be aspects you don't enjoy. Employers need you to be willing to work hard to do a good job. The only quantifiable means they have of this is your qualifications (and references, but we'll leave that). If you work hard at ALL subjects in school and perform well then it shows that you are willing to do the work you don't enjoy as much, as well as the stuff you excel in.
That's what I tell students when they ask what the point is of subjects they don't particularly enjoy.
im in geometryclass right now. quick, someone laugh at me!
In all honesty though, I think a useless class could be more defined by the professor teaching it than the actual subject matter sometimes. Even if it's some wacky elective that has no bearing on your major, if the professor makes it interesting enough for you it'll be worthwhile anyway since you'll take something out of it.
I took a sociology survey course my first year of university, and while sociology may be a bit "ehhhhh...." in and of itself, the professor was so batshit insane the class became awesome. He was like 90 years old and tenured beyond anyone's imagination so he could go off saying insane things for the entire hour and a half and no one could do ****.
Things he did:
Every class he'd stare at the board and write a bunch of random numbers on it after a few good minutes of thinking. Then he'd slap some wild thing on it that made no since like, "Distribution of wealth" and go on some anti-Bush/anti-American rant.
He threw a kid out for saying he didn't like the idea of national healthcare, after asking him, "Do you like the idea of a national healthcare system?"
One of our exam questions was, "Which event allowed Bush and his minions to start their plan to spread their influence around the world?" The answers were, "Sep. 11, The Janet Jackson nipple slip (relatively topical back when I was a college freshman...), The War of 1812, or Breakfast.
So basically, the class was beyond useless. HOWEVER, because the teacher was so ****ing nutty and was the EASIEST grader on this side of the Illuminati (another of his favorite topics.), I don't regret taking it. I got an A and laughed my ass off twice a week, I also thought this was what all sociology was (not far off) and successfully steered away from it for the remainder of my undergraduate career. Overall, I liked it.
It does vary, but being a federal program means that the same opportunities are available to everyone. As I said, you really just have to seek them out. I personally wouldn't have gone through so much trouble to join the AP program myself, but I have always been from a somewhat underprivileged household, so if I didn't get into a good college and get grants and scholarships to go to it, I more than likely wouldn't have ever had the opportunity.
no one laughs at me? thats actually awesome! hey marylinn pm ur FB if u have one k? i can chat via there in class
ive forgotten 99% of what i learnt at school
english imo is the most useless. after about grade 7 you stop being taught things and just have to write longer and longer essays
pharmacy marketing and management...it's code for they assign us groups and 2 projects and my team is too retarded to successfully complete the projects so I do them all myself.
Career planning and personal development classes.
Good for the first half year, but then they repeat everything over and over again.
Whats so bad about TRIGONOMETRY?
It's pretty easy once u grab the basic concept.
geometry,geography(i pretty much hate those two), ukrainian(i hope the teacher magically dissapears, she is so annoying), biology(i don't really dislike it, it is just that i don't plan anything related with it in my life after school, so it is really like a placeholder)
IT - our teacher is batshit bad, he doesn't know you spell setup with p, he doesn't know what to do with a simple minigame that floods your screen, he doesn't know of the align your icons in the form of penis script - etc...
he even turns off the internet if you finally get to the pcs after writing 3-4 pages of text about what to do with ms word
sure getting grades there is easy - every test has a text file with answers to it in the pc but it is rather useless
literally did every assignment by searching google when i didn't know how to use a class, first page was always the online java tutorial
