Most Boring Subjects in SchoolJaAcDc
The Top Ten
Something dies in me when I enter Math class.
We should only learn the basics of math not functions, factorials, polynomials... What for? I don't wanna be a engineer so I think I really don't need to study all those useless stuff!
After elementary school, math is the only subject (for me at least) that never gets turned into anything fun. In English, I've written stories and played Kahoot. In social studies, I've watched movies. In science, I've done experiments. In math? We just do math. The only time it was remotely fun was on Pi day, but besides that it's never been fun in middle school.
Worst subject, math teachers are always weirdV 354 Comments
Borderline mandatory philosophy in the Catholic school system. This kind of material is boring for most and requires a genuine interest in the material, which is often lacking. Majority of people (myself included) have a hard time staying awake. Do to the inherent lack of interest, it's pretty common for people to study other courses when review time is given in class. Overall, us students are bored out of our minds (except for the rare exceptions) and the teachers struggle to teach when no one paid attention/fell asleep and no one wants to answer the teacher's questions. Nobody really wins. It's even worse when most people in the Catholic system were dragged into it by parents and grows up questioning their belief or ends up becoming atheist, thus even less motivated to learn the material
Based on my experiences, the biggest cause for lack of interest is because we're so focussed on good-paying, reputable, jobs such as engineering or medical. Not a lot of what is taught in ...more
Basically, the study of religion is mostly philosophical. There are several major religions globally, and each has their own beliefs. But here's the thing. Some of their beliefs make little sense, but if you analyze them further, you can infer a purposeful meaning from them and apply it to your life. They're like life lessons that you can learn from. It lets you see our world in a unique perspective.
To justify my point, I'll discuss about the Catholic Church's belief of the Earth's creation. In this rendition, God created everything from light/dark, sun/sky, and animals. Of course this isn't likely how the Earth was formed but you can see it in other ways as well. Different interpretations can lead to a better understanding of this event, even though it's not completely accurate in terms of science.
Finally, I believe that people should have faith in their God because to worship them requires devotion and understanding of said religion. As another example, I believe in ...more - Kwaysar
Well at least it's not just Christianity its learning world religion.
Except in my religious education class around finishing for Christmas we played a game of scrabble, even watched Narnia.
Religious Studies is not read the Bible in every lesson.
It's called Religious Education.
It's learning the religions of the world.
I was never interested in it.
It's ok if you want it for a job.
I honestly dislike English. Learning about Shakespeare and analyzing poetry by far has to be one of the most boring subjects out there. I mean in reality are we really going to need to understand how to interpret meanings, emotions, tones, theme's of short stories in order to become successful? I want to learn how to make money and be able to live a great and wealthy lifestyle, however citing and quoting poems is certainly not going to make me achieve that type of lifestyle.
Same goes for Chinese... "What is the meaning of this sentence on paper and deep below? " "This word is used greatly, explain it in detail." "What are the benefits of using this figure of speech? " SAVE ME! - MChkflaguard_Yt
Every time I enter this class, I see my life flash before my eyes, and think about the fact that I could be doing what
I have in my life rather than do this. WE ALREADY SPEAK THE LANGUAGE!
Every single class I literally have to write a useless essay about stupid stuff that doesn't even relate to the class. We have a book that is TOO educational because they wanted to "raise the standards and make us better". If you have to learn about how flowers grow in the desert, HOW DOES IT EVEN RELATE!?
Also, you don't have to stay in this waste of educational time class for 12 years just to learn how to write an essay and crap. I don't need to write a paper just to pull my car into the garage, thank you. And I don't have to analyze poetry or anything like that just to do everyday things. The thing that kills me the most is Shakespeare, especially Romeo and Juliet.
Now, we have to do EVERYTHING on computers, which makes it even more boring, because I hate technology (don't ...more
I read a lot... Like, a lot. I just read The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Leo Tolstoy on my free time -- not a common reading choice for an eighth grader. But despite the fact that I love to read, I hate English. Really. It's boring. I really don't care about the life of Shakespeare, I'd rather just read the damn book.
1. ) it doesn't take 12 years of English to learn to read a book. Completely useless subject after maybe 5th grade.
2. ) Oh of course I'm gonna need to know poetry for...
3. ) hmm something's I've 'learned' in this class should be common sense for most people.
Be disappointed, knowing you had to spend 12 years of learning how to write a letter, Only to Be an Engineer
America needs your help people. Protest against this communist subject.
Oh my God, I hate PE! I'm just so @#&$ing sick of having to waste time wearing myself to a half-dead bellows after a useless time-waster! I constantly have to kill myself running and jumping over bars, as if it will change my future like other subjects will. Well, it won't! And why do I have to do a @#&$ing ridiculous test on what positions require what to do?! For crying out &$ing loud, do I need that crap?! It doesn't change my knowledge, so do you idiots call this @#&$ing education, huh? Education is meant to get good from students. Does PE do that? No! PE makes everyone believe that body power is more important than intellect. There is no greater social downfall. And what good do you get from professional sports?! When you watch your local team win, say, the Superbowl, you see several @#&$ing idiots who, thanks to PE, have been brainwashed into thinking that chasing a fat man with a ball is a better thing to do than proving string theory, which will change the world, as opposed ...more

P.E. ruined the 2nd half of my 6th grade. We had to take a test on P.E. I find a waste of time. I really want the lockers to have stalls so kids do not get tortured and have keys instead if locks. The locker room says Fun and Fitness, but the main class says Dull and Inactive. We do not need lectures about the game. Science is right, P.E. does not give you adequate exercise. I had a hard time liking anyone who said Computers is not as good. We came here for fun and fitness, what a ripoff of a class. At least Computers follows its namesake and has free time for downloaded games. By breaking the vow of its motto at my school, P.E. wastes an entire class period. If I ran the system, it would be Computers the whole year for each grade.
Pe is the worst. I may be good at pe, but it just seems like my teachers are torturing us. Its 25 degrees outside, and my class is out on the track freezing to death
Math gets too much hate. All the hate Math gets should go to P.E.V 141 Comments
Love it but a lot of people suck at grammar
I already know how to spell, why would I need a lesson in spelling? - HowToTrainYourDragonFan1001
It's good and helpful, but how the English teachers teach it sucks.
Whenever I enter this class and my teacher says "Today we will spell toxic, phobia, mass, atmosphere, and why, now, anyone who isn't familiar with any of these words please raise your hand" and half the classes hand's shoot up! It's spelling! Once I almost asked, "is this how you get an A+ as a teacher, Mrs. Morris? Being above and beyond boring? " - SwiftdawnV 25 Comments
Oh come on! I really hate learning this. I'm really am not trying to be offensive, at all. I would just rather take Italian or German. I'm sorry, but Spanish just doesn't make it for me.
Anyone who voted for math or science is confused because those 2 things are necessary for society to function. Think about something that is not made with science / math. Society is just fine without Spanish.
Who needs to learn another language when they are in their OWN country? Like seriously, English Americans need to learn Spanish aside from their own language? Boring and bad, repetitive and stupid!
Most garbage subject in the entire 4 years of learning, it have never used it in my years of living and I don't plan on using it in the future. High school shouldn't make a student take 2 years of a foreign language if they don't want too.V 42 Comments
Science is fun because you learn about how to investigate crimes it is very interesting. If science didn't exsist then we wouldn't know anything about weight and how life goes how to help our plants how to be a doctor that is science
Earth science is the absolute worst.
Science is fine but for my school it depends on what teacher you have because its really easy for a teacher to make this subject boring physics is cool though - std_free_since_2003
I kinda have trouble paying attention in certain classes and this is one of them.V 66 Comments
It makes me sick to my stomach and I'm glad I said no to this when visitors came to our school and when I went back to class to look for my friend and tell him its time to go back to the other classroom I saw a haunting sight.
They turn the most memorable time in your entire life into a burden. This is why school is the absolute worst. It intrudes into the private lives of students and tells parents how to raise their children.
Just because the name is VERY deceiving. - fireinside96
So true. My school's view is like "If you don't remain abstinent you will get pregnant and die. " Thanks a lot, PTA.V 57 Comments
I hate the way people - especially teachers - perceive the quote, "Those who forget history are bound to repeat it." The quote is referring to a general understanding of history, not memorizing useless facts. I don't care about when the ALF was founded. I don't care what Rockefeller did in 1920. I care about the BIG PICTURE! History teachers almost never teach the big picture only the useless facts.
My philosophy is that history is like a set of science experiments. Different ideologies are tried out and tested. We try to find out how to create the best possible society. We can do that by both looking at what worked and didn't work in the past (study history) and using common sense and logic to determine what the best path would be. We need a combination of both to be successful. History classes tend to neglect the latter.
The end goal of life is to create an environment in which (ideally) everyone is happy. Obviously, it's almost impossible to ensure universal ...more
This is by far one of the most boring and pointless classes ever. I get taking it in grade school, but once you get to high school, it becomes way too much. Even in world history classes, US history seeps through. US history is literally a repeat of itself every single time you take it. Every. Single. Time. Nothing changes. The Revolutionary War still happened when it did. George Washington still became the first president. There was still an attack on Pearl Harbor. 9/11 still happened on 9/11. You rarely ever learn anything new. It's horrible. And have you noticed teachers always spend the most time on the same thing? I swear, my high school teacher went over the Revolutionary War for about 3 months...you know, like my grade school teachers did too. There comes a point when people gotta stop and think "haven't these kids already learned the ins and outs of US history? " Plus, every single history class starts out with a mini-essay on the quote "Those who forget history are doomed to ...more - ultralyssa

i hate it
Nobody needs this, I wish I would have taken a German course...
I actually love French, the language itself, and I actually want to learn it. Other kids from my school hate it because of the teacher. It's a shame. If you really like something and you want to actually learn it you ignore everything that makes everyone else hate it. You even find it easier and make better grades in the subject.
This subject is useless, and I will never go to france because I HATE FRENCH LESSONS WITH A BURNING PASSION!V 34 Comments
Sst should be on number 1 most irritating subject in the world
This is boring and pointless for me as well. I once cried over it. - PhilTheCorgi
If you think about it, learning about what some people did before we even existed doesn't help at all in the future, but it is the part that gives bad grades, which is unfair.

Somewhere out there, this Asian tenth-grader stares awkwardly at the screen and ponders about the irony of the sentence: "Algebra is not math."
If you could kindly explain the meaning of your statement, please...?
Believe it or not but algebra is not math. Math is the simple 16x12, but algebra takes that, and demoralizes it. So complex it's hard, yet so simple it's boring the WORST SUBJECT EVER.
I'm taking Algebra as an eighth grader. I'm thinking about hurdling myself out of that window. It's so simple and boring. It's in no way difficult. I understand the help in learning Algebra, I just wish it was taught twice as fast.
Just when you think you dominate numbers, algebra smacks you in the face with lettersV 18 Comments

Oh dear. I couldn't even try to pay attention in this class. Good thing it was middle school. If I had to take this class in high school or college, I would not be able to bear it.

history I can do math I can stand, government put a bullet in my head - blaqksails92
I just hate the way the class is presented. They don't put recent news about the government. And its just words and words. Nothing entertaining.
While we learn about our government's past and how to learn from it, our present government is falling at break-neck speed, some of the causes having been issues 50 years ago...
Sounds like the dumbest subject, and I will also cringe if there's such a thing like Chinese Government subject in my school. - MChkflaguard_YtV 11 Comments
My school has 2 concerts each year and my music teacher picks the worst songs. One time we were doing "Three Little Birds" and then she took it off the list because the concert was too long. My reaction to that was "REALLY! " as I walked out of the classroom
Music sucks in my school because we do 1 musical concert which is a Christmas musical and if your school does the same I said just lip synch or if it's a concert just don't do any line because you have to miss recess in my school just to get a line memorized so not worth it and it's pure hell
Music sucks in my school because all our music teacher does is make us sing songs and do 1 or 2 concerts a school year and if you hate singing lip synch.
Music class SUCKS. I hate my music teacher, she's a total snob and she's always grumpy. She excepts us to know everything about music, and when somebody does something wrong, she gets pissed off. She makes us do all of these stupid tests on musical symbols and notes. I hate her, ugh.V 25 Comments

How is drama boring? Sure it can be difficult, but it isn't boring. If you would rather do maths then drama, you must really have a boring life - Lanturnizer6
Drama go to HELL, man! I mean, like, I once got part in a play, and my dialogue was, " Let's start the dance! " and I said, " let's start the s***! ". I was grounded, yes. - dusk_taker
I recommend not to be in field of Drama. It is useless and nothing to study. Only writing a script, reading a story, act a short drama. Actors earn lot of money but their minds are like empty vessels. They only think about their famousity and money they have.V 15 Comments

If you want to become a public speaker, this is the perfect class. Hence the subject's name. But I do strongly agree that it's not for those who have a disorder or are too shy to speak in front of crowds. However, social skills and dealing with nervousness is essential in the majority of jobs. An alternative to this is practicing communication and confidence with someone you trust and you can determine how you do that as this method is versatile. There are other ways to practice those skills, but that's what I find best as I consider myself in that spectrum. - Kwaysar
It's especially a horrible course for children who are introverted, shy or actually have social phobias. I see no point in learning how to give a speech if I'm too shy to ever even put myself in the position in the real world.
Awful! I used to have major anxiety attacks before this lesson. It never even helped with my public speaking skills

The only class I dislike in my new school. The first two days were good, but my teacher likes to round us up in these groups. For the record, I hate working in groups because I'm the shy, quiet type of person. And to make things worse, I prefer to be alone in my thoughts. So I tend to day dream about INTERESTING THINGS... So, I tend to think about questions a little harder. But, my teacher pulled a move that most teachers do occasionally, which I REALLY HATE. They asked me, specifically if I was doing my work. Remember how I said that I tend do to be quiet? Turns out, I have a quiet voice. That, my friends, is a recipe for disaster... I also get unintentional accidental additudes. So, they couldn't hear me after I said the same thing FIVE TIMES IN A ROW! That day, was the day that I learned, my eighth period is a living nightmare. Worst class. It replaced my other horrible class is used to have, which was speech and debate. Not only the worst class, but the worst elective I have. This ...more

Actually, without Latin would we not have languages such as: Italian, French, Romania, Spanish and without Spanish itself then no different forms of it, of course, and what about the Mayo languages? Learning Latin at an early age can make it easier to understand a wide range of other languages. Do you guys even know why it became a frozen language? Other than that, or sort of at least: people such as myself, latintutorial and like most of his followers, Enya and her friend Roman, Andreas Nordin and MORE actually work with keeping it alive. Why? How would you feel if you woke up one day and your language got pretty much extinct? I understand the French and Icelandic ones on this. Also! Read Latin For Dummies.
Actually, Latin is supposedly a dead language until SOMEONE decided to make it show up again and now we have MODERN LATIN! Latin is supposed to be buried deep underground already! Why did it show up again?!
