Most Pointless School Subjects

The Top Ten Most Pointless School Subjects

1 P.E.

Are you guys actually serious right now? P.E. is not a pointless class period, lots of people here are trying to point out that P.E. doesn't provide important exercise such as weight training. Well, did you ever realize that one of the main purposes of P.E. is to rid you of stress and anxiety and to just get outside to move around. Do you guys seriously want to sit in a classroom all day and go home to do your homework all night. P.E. is the time to just loose off and not be stressed out so much. I swear, people these days just don't want good things. How is running around and goofing off with your friends not fun?

I'm dead serious.
PE encourages bullying rather than eliminating it. Especially when it comes to teams, the nerds will always be picked last, making them more socially isolated. - MChkflaguard_Yt

PE is simply ridiculous. It does not help you with anything in life, and is more likely to get you a pathetic life than a productive one. And it ruins your dignity from when you start it until when you can drop it. - PositronWildhawk

Not a fan of physical education on a personal level simply because as someone with a physical disability it has always presented me a challenge; however, to dismiss the importance of this class indicates a lack of education in general. The principle is movement for a healthy body. We are not all athletes, nor will we all play sports professionally. I do agree more focus needs to be in aerobics and less on specific sports in these classes for that reason. Still, I understand the over-arching principle is to present a variety of sports to expose students to things they may be interested in pursuing. And that's the most important role we possess as educators, to offer choices and opportunities to students to expand their horizons! - Listlover77

PE is sometimes fun, like when we get to use the weights room, because it was about you getting better, all about you. When we are in teams, it was pointless, especially if you were trying and every else wasn't.

2 Algebra

Algebra teaches critical thinking, pattern recognition, and aligns to problem-solving. At its most basic level, there really are helpful applications for the general population; however, as you advance through the course, some uses become much more theoretical which is generally true for any math course. Again, it's about expanding horizons and providing choices for students to develop skill sets that translate beyond a mere classroom.
And no, I'm not a fan of math per se
(though I enjoy certain aspects). Still, there is no denying Algebra I and some basic exposure to applied geometry is a must for everybody whether or not people understand that premise. Trust me; it's needed!

That being said, higher level math such as Algebra II (required by most states), Pre-Cal, Calculus, etc... those are truly targeted specifically for students geared toward advanced degrees in Chemistry or Physics. All education possesses value-- but not all us applicable to everyone.

To ...more - Listlover77

Really? PE over algebra? As the people on this website fat yards or something with diabetes? Algebra is way more pointless.


So true although it's an easy a your always going to know the numbers in a math equation.

3 Religious Education

If you're religious, teach it to your kids and let them make up their own minds. Don't drill it in at school unless that's what they believe in.

Religion isn't important. Religion exists because God wants us to be good. That's all. Why do we have to learn about the genesis, Noah's ark, Easter, Jesus death, Satan, David and Goliath, Moses, Egyptians, Mary, all stuff like that?
It's totally useless. To make God proud, just be a good person. You don't have to read the bible or stuff.

I believed Christianity in Primary School.
But in Secondary School I was sceptic with Christianity.
But it's not useless if you want to work in a church for religion. (Yeah not other things for example cooking and art classes in the week, and whatever else they do that you don't need to be a Christian to enjoy.)

ok cool there are many religions. Too bad I don't really care.I already knew that anyways

4 English Literature

English literature is the epitome of pointless. It has zero value in being studied, and serves no purpose in the real world. Math is used to make everything from computers to bridges, history is important to learn to prevent past events from repeating, and science is important because it relates to things sounding us everyday, and has led to so many invaluable discoveries, such as the cures for diseases. And of course, regular English is massively important for obvious reasons. You may not necessarily use all the subjects I listed above, but this does not change the fact that they are still so important in our world, and a lot more problems would exist today if we stopped studying them. But let me ask you this: What would happen if people stopped studying old English? Let me give you the obvious answer: Absolutely NOTHING. Nothing would change, because it does not affect our world in the slightest bit. What is the actual point of reading this stuff? There is no point, yet high school ...more

The only subject on this list that is required at the highest level, In my province Grade 12 30-1 in order to go to university. But what actual job beside English teacher needs to know what an simile and metaphor are?

In primary school, it was helpful if you liked writing stories and poetry. In secondary school, it's wasteful.

English literature is a bunch of bullsh**. How is it going to be beneficial in life. Will shakespeare really play a part in your future life. I really hope not! Do you really think people want to sit in their chair for 1 and a half hours talking about Shakespeare conveying his emotions and thoughts. Do you really think that Shakespeare himself thought about whether or not he's going to use a metaphor, simile or personificaiton. I highly doubt it. Is there a point in learning about things that had happened 400 years ago and is fictional. Children nowadays are wasting their lives reciting some bloody play that they will only do once. The essay you write for 1 or 2 exams will be a waste of time because at the end of the day no one will read it ever again. Although modern english is beneficial to current lives for communication will you ever say this to your girl/boyfriend thou is't well looking. Sorry to people who like english but your wasting your time reading a whole load of crap. ...more

5 Dance

In Spanish class, we had to do a Zumba dance for a workout. And if we did not do properly, we had to do it in front of the whole class. Luckily, no one had to do this.

I actually never took a dance class as a kid, but if I did I'd be pissed. I'm an accountant.

I was forced to dab because of the graduation dance. The 2018 one might of had Fortnite related dances including the floss. The dab is my biggest life regret.

Dance sucks, there is not point in it, therefore, why is it taught at school

6 History

Why did I have to suffer year after year of Australian history in primary school, and now European and Asian history in secondary school? It's a waste of time...

History allows us to learn from the large scale mistakes that many have made throughout in the past. By not learning history, we can develop views that are wrong and views that are not in any way based on facts or truth, but rather the hate for a large group of people, whether it is religion, race or gender. By learning about the past our views become valid, because we have based them on facts. - ZH

I'm extremely good at history, and it is my favorite subject so this will obviously be biased. I want to politely counter some peoples arguments seeing it as unnecessary, and say just this. The reason history is important is because it shows how the following developed: religion, civilization, culture, society. History shows us how the world used to work, and how it applies to the modern day. They say that those who don't learn history are doomed to repeat it, and we have seen this several times in the past. It can be important to learn history to shape the way people think, otherwise we can travel down the wrong path again, and again, and again. For example the crimes, killings, and atrocities that the Japanese and Germans committed during WW2 were some of the worlds greatest atrocities with the death toll in the tens of millions. If people don't learn about this, people could be influenced by a "New Hitler" that can rise to power, and change everything we know, and not knowing what ...more

Seriously. Unless you will be a history TEACHER (which pretty much creates a whole messy-paradox thing) you really don't need to know this stuff.

7 Critical Thinking/Social Change

Critical thinking is a skill, not a class. Social change is the result of ideology and personal beliefs about systems that need to be tweaked for specific purposes in human interaction and is tied more closely to history.

As to whether there is a course someone slapped a name on to pump up self-importance: it's done all the time. Most "strange" courses are the result of dissertation students or professors obtaining grants, however. I'm guessing this course probably has to do with examining multiple solutions to current social crisis. - Listlover77

I don't know what that is

The hell?! This is a class?! The world is damaged...

Really it’s a subject! More useless then dance

8 Latin

Both Latin and Greek are precursors to most world/modern languages including what are known as the Romance Languages: Spanish, French, Italian. In addition, English possesses many borrowed words and phrases from these languages. Above all, Latin and Greek are universal in both the medical and legal fields worldwide and connect such individuals as scientists globally which is important in the advancement of medicine.
In this day and age, it probably should be elective, though. That being said, you have probably been exposed to it already in English, history, and your science courses more especially including Biology. Nothing is useless; the question is whether or not your place a value on it. - Listlover77

It's an extinct language. If you want to learn a Romance language like Spanish just take Spanish courses.


Nobody uses it in today's world (maybe aside from a few religious people or priests). We really don't need to learn this in school. - RogerMcBaloney

9 Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
10 Music

Music, art, literature, film: who can truly imagine a world without these. I certainly don't want to, and art connects us the most basic universal level of any other discipline. It's like a personalized Hallmark card with our stamp sealed on it. We need beauty and hope in this world to encourage, motivate, inspire and dare us to dream and create. This becomes a process tied to a cycle and life is a cycle.

"Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus..." anyone remember that? We need music and all other types of creative expression even if we don't pursue them personally, we are certain to gravitate to them and they provide relaxation, comfort, joy, hope, and inspiration. What a sad world, we'd occupy without them! - Listlover77

I disagree and I don't know how this is even up here. Music is perhaps one of, if not the most important aspects of life. To have a class that can teach you why, or a class to teach you how is just as important. Music is how people can communicate and express feeling. Music has been a part of civilization ever since humans discovered sound could be produced to make tunes. It is cultural, it is magical and inspirational. You take music class not because you are or are not interested in music, but because it is important to understand why music is so impactful in the first place. Who knows, maybe you'll even learn how to create music yourself.

No point of this class even existing. If you was interested in music, you'd know before then. The only thing this class has done is made me scared of the recorder. - Cazaam

Choir sucks so much

The Contenders

11 Problem-based learning

I honestly don't know what this is, but it sounds stupid

12 Art

I was forced to do art and I got into trouble for 'not doing it right' in primary school. I was 10 years old!

Music is a form of art, and if Taylor Swift didn't learn about it, she wouldn't have made music, which means tons of people I know would be hurt. It's not such a useless subject when you really think about it.

We could not thrive or survive as a culture without art: in fact, art is one of the defining premises and a true earmark of a civilized society. - Listlover77

Art is pretty pointless, if someone liked art they would do it outside of school. Not as useful as other subjects on this list, both below and above art. Spanish is on this list even though it is the second most widely spoken language in the world. RE is pretty crap but it helps to understand people's religions. PE has been said to reduce obesity in children ("apparently"). Science definitely helps also.

13 Study Skills

I have a BA and an MS and am working on a JD. Think I have figured out how to study at this point in my life. Why am I forced to take and pay for a class that is an utter waste of my time and only serves to add to my work load, which for a JD candidate is already heavy enough. The 4 hours a week of work it adds is disproportionate to the 1 hr of credit I get that isn't even required by the degree.
There is no reason why this class should not not be no. 1 on the list as the biggest waste of time.

14 Human Geography

If you want to travel, buy a travel book and study it. Buy a map, etc. That's the only thing geography is useful for, the rest of it is a waste.

This class damaged my freshman year completely since I would've gotten a 4.0 GPA!

Essays after essays. There is more essays and assignments than there are planes coming in and out of Atlanta

I just can't focus in this ridiculous subject, it is idiotic, hideous, and is a waste of your time.
Like what are you going to use your knowledge of weather forecasting for?
Also, like what kind of job are you doing where you need knowledge of different rocks?

15 Spanish

Extremely important especially if you live in a border state! Roots in Latin the original language from which every major work has been translated. All language is relevant-- see my other reflections in sub-areas of this list for further explanation! - Listlover77

Why do you have to take Spanish classes? Like, what does it DO to make you better when you grow up?

Just saying, languages are for the most part elective classes. Besides, English is not "main language" of the world. Chinese, followed by Spanish THEN English are the top three languages spoken worldwide. If anything, Chinese or Spanish is preferable than English. Get your facts straight

Spanish is very important in North America. There are a lot of Spanish speakers in the US, and it only helps to learn the second most dominant language in the US

16 Gender Studies

Man the lefties are using new improved tactics to indoctrinate little kids nowadays - styLIShT

So in High School, I was choosing classes to take, so I was like "AyYyy lEts TakE tHiS" and it SUCKED. I do think that women deserve equality, but the class was SO bad! The tests were LITERALLY asking us "Do all people deserve equality" and "what is a queer" EVERY SINGLE TEST.

Most useless subject by far. Taught by waves of whales and fat feminists.

A study about imaginary genders. Wow. - CartoonCriticizer

17 Math

Math is hard, but life without math is hard. How did we get these accurate measurements of structures? How did we calculate how far is one place to another?

Not only is it very important, it is vital to daily functioning: comparison shopping for best values, creating or following basic recipes, redecorating or redesigning a home or personal space, investing and saving money for retirement and financial portfolios, ensuring you aren't ripped off at the cash register, clocking departure and arrival times, especially in the aviation field. Can you imagine continual sky crash-- those would not be "friendly" skies! Lol... - Listlover77

Most of the material u learn in math will be very useful in later life! Understanding area and perimeter can be used for house designing. Math is used in everyday life.
ESPECIALLY if your applying as a mathmetician or computer programmer.

You do not need this unless you want a scientific job or want to be a teacher in it.
No one flips burgers except for Spongebob.
The only food you flip is a pancake.

18 Media Studies

Unless you want to be a journo for a tabloid, a film reviewing feminist or interested in working for the mainstream media or film ind. Or marketing In any way, there is really little point in picking media studies as it doesn't really teach you anything valuable or useful that you couldn't learn in sociology or English class, or by downloading Photoshop and movie editor. Trying to find what the colour blue 'signifies' on a man's shirt on a magazine cover is NOT education. Most of the course was painfully common sense based and I regret choosing it because it isn't a very valuable a level. I wish schools didn't lie to us like this.

19 Handwriting

There are computers now, and they have keyboards. How much do we really need to write? Not much, except when schools make you WRITE essays. Typing is way faster and especially with modern technology being more and more accessible, handwriting is not important.

I can't understand handwriting, so the more people that use, the worst for me

My handwriting will suck forever, and the world isn't going to care about it either when I'm being lowered into a hole in the ground.

Some states don't even require this anymore. And this is not a class per se; it's a skill that's often taught at the primary and elementary levels. That being said, I believe everyone needs to develop a signature at the very least. I realize we live in a tech-based world and not everyone has gorgeous handwriting, but people benefit from this on several levels: learning different strokes that can be used in hobbies like calligraphy or even drafting, pattern recognition (yes, this applies to cursive writing), spatial awareness, and fine motor skills, especially for children with orthopedic problems or receiving occupational therapy. - Listlover77

20 Latin American Studies
21 Science

Relevant, fun, and engaging courses with many sub-disciplines including Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Physics, Horticulture, Agriculture, etc... It teaches the function and role of life processes, explores the history and evolution behind them, uses applied (hands-on) experimentation and collaboration, requires that you ask as many questions as possible, formulate hypothesis as well as dissuade them. It's always based on discovery and therefore cyclical and never-ending much like history!
Fascinating and teaches various skills: problem-solving, critical thinking, mathematical computation, creative inquiry, etc... Definitely need these courses! Not only for doctors, more specifically as you advance (yes), but in general populations as well: teachers, chefs, engineers, computer techs, media specialists, farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, inventors, lab techs, etc... - Listlover77

By far the most useless. A question for the school board, will we EVER and I mean EVER use the information we learn in Biology, Chemistry, or any other mainstream science in normal everyday life? No, we will never use it unless we are in that specific field in the future (and in that case should be either an elective or a college class only). Honestly, Financial Education should be put in place of Science in the High School requirements to graduate. And honestly, half of what modern High Schools teach should be elective ONLY! I rest my case

Unless you're a scientist or major in a scientific field, there is really no use at all for this subject. I don't think science truly deepens our understanding of the world. It's great knowing how basic things function, but schools make us memorize complicated parts that don't help us understand science any better.

(it shows us how things work, but not why things are this way/questioning reality.. for example, do the things we interact with exist? Does knowledge really make you smarter? Are the things we believe "right" or "wrong"? )

the questions above are part of what philosophers study- they put their beliefs to the test and really QUESTION EVERYTHING!

This subject is dumb and I will not use it in my future what so ever

22 Product Design

it is useless because you will probably own half the stuff you make

What's the point of designing a basic thing you already own from scratch? It's just an extremely tedious lesson which I quickly abandoned. - Cazaam

Its annoying

I couldn't agree more. it is a waste of money, time and flesh

23 Economics

While a young person may not consider the viability of this course, let me caution you: invest, save, and comparison shop. Tracking trends and patterns and becoming familiar with basic terminology relevant to your work life: income tax, sales tax, net pay, gross pay, deduction, IRA, etc... allows you to maximize and
to secure your earning potential! - Listlover77

I guess it is important to learn about but is not going to be relevant to 95% of careers. - ParasN2000

Who cares about this subject? Math is very important as is Science and History, but seriously? - Swiftdawn

Anyone? Anyone?

24 Pre-Algebra

Right when you thought standard algebra was useless, there is more.. - ParasN2000


A pointless subject to make the smart kids look bad

Your right m8

25 Chemistry

Chemistry is sometimes useful for making new medicines for example when a disease is infecting everyone. We need chemistry to make the new medicine.

I am currently a software developer. So, why the hell was I forced to study chemistry at school? To become a software developer you don't need chemistry at all. 90% of careers don't need chemistry as well, so I can't understand how is that we are forced to study this subject.

Thank you, thank you, same problem here, but or Chemistry teacher is killing us, we must know every single thing, why?

If at least they teached you how to make your own drugs!

26 World Politics

Unless you're going to become a world leader, which is very unlikely, you don't need to know world politics.

Unless you like to solve other people's problems. You might as well sell your soul to the devil.

27 Sexual Education

I agree that they need to educate the kids on this subject, but it should only be thought in high school. Teaching sex education to little children is a bad idea since they are very naive and suggestible at this age. - RogerMcBaloney

This is VERY important and HAS to be taught. Some people enter their elementary/junior/primary school classes knowing little to nothing about this topic. It is a subject that many parents avoid educating their children about and rely on schools to. - ParasN2000

Okay, I'm not sure about others, this is just to my knowledge. I already knew everything I needed to know from Sex Ed. before I even started it. It wasn't from the internet, it was just there. No one tells mammals how to do this. I understand it's also puberty, but again, I already had it under control... Then again maybe I'm biased because I'm the only kid in my school to not have started.

Well I learn't sexual education in year 4 and it has helped and prepared me with my body as a girl. I didn't freak out and knew what to do straight away. We learn't how to make babies as a ten year old! I think it made my classmates mature and stuff. High school well there really wasn't a repeat as we learnt about different diseases and prevention, so I guess its like biology haha. I know my parents would never teach me this stuff, mum is to embarrassed to. Was funny when my brother who was in year 3 came up to my mum and explained about sperm and stuff haha.

28 Language Arts

Language Arts is a composite course combining literature, grammar, semantics, reading, writing, speaking, listening, introspection, spelling, genre studies, and media incorporation including technology. It emphasizes communication as a relevant and necessary life process, which it is; without language arts, (this includes not only standard English but also any foreign languages you may learn) other areas and disciplines would not exist, save perhaps agriculture since it is really the earliest science pursuant to survival.

And perhaps, I am biased, since I'm an ELA teacher, but I wholeheartedly ascribe to the premise and believe in the principle of language as the first line of defense: a proactive measure in expressing not only our unique perspectives, but more importantly, in connecting us as a global world.

Education eradicates ignorance and communication is the cornerstone of it! - Listlover77

Let me be honest. Being a writer / author is a job that you can get, same with an ELA teacher, but not everyone NEEDS to know advanced language arts stuff to get by when they grow up. If others can understand you still, I don't see why you need perfect grammar.

Why should I care about what kind of phrase I'm writing, oh wait, I DON'T. So why am I forced to take a class about it every YEAR. Also the almost never ending amount of essays, stupid assignments about syntax and diction, WHO CARES? Unless you plan to be an author or something in that department, the only thing helpful is when you learn about how to speak or write without sounding like a massive idiot.

When or why would I ever need or want to know what an example of a simile or an onomatopoeia or whatever is in real life? It's just not useful or necessary information. This class doesn't help anyone- it's all just stupid English literature and projects that take way too long, paired with one of the dullest classroom experiences you'll ever have. Have I convinced you it's pointless yet?

29 Trigonometry

What the hell is that? sOmEtHiNg sTuPiD 4 sUrE - xXbfdi_bhabieXx

@xXbfdi_bhabieXx-it's very hard math.

30 Geography

This is the most boring subject ever why would I ever want to know about rocks and the formation of rivers spits and bars. Where is this going to be useful in my life we already know east where the sun rises west the sun sets north east west south.

Useless and boring. my mom says its useful for travel. first of all, we can bring maps. second of all, I hate travel. geography is better than history though - DumbWays2DieFan

31 Band

Bands create music which is part of the art that helps civilized, advanced societies exist. In addition, it teaches discipline, structure, and unspoken rules which help you function in a hard to read world! - Listlover77

The band teachers were knuckleheads

I'm glad I quit band, it was horrible lol. Also my band teacher hates me for quitting so I can't be in her sight anymore or she'll focus on a rant lol...

It's not a subject, more of a club..

32 Physics

I had a lot of fun sleeping in this class, and I didn't take away anything from it.

Surface area, time, energy density, pressure, imaginary unit, distance, imaginary unit, time, photon, factorial

Pretty much useless for anyone who doesn't want to be a physician. Also, confusing as hell.

You clearly do horrible in school if you don't know the difference between a physician and a physicist. The first one is a doctor, the latter is a scientist. - Vegetable

It’s very useless

33 Reading

I am able to read, just because I don't like reading books doesn't mean I don't read. Teach us how to read, not force us to read a lot a day if we don't like it. I prefer reading articles than books, but book reports aren't on my side then.

Also a part of composite Ela, Reading is a necessary life function used in other content areas and in a global world including various media (blogs, newspapers, magazines, etc...). People must read on basic levels for specific purposes everyday: one of the most important examples prescription labels on bottles. If you don't possess basic print awareness, death could literally be the result.

Job applications and resumes require this skill along with writing to ascertain basic communication processes. All jobs require some degree of reading, no matter how minor. - Listlover77

This subject in my opinion is the absolute worst. Having to read books for school, which is stupid in itself, is pretty useless. Who actually wants to read books, chosen by some of the most education savvy twits in the world, that seem to be the center of boredom. They always pick classics, too. This has brought my definition of a classic book to being over 50 years old, overusing unnecessarily long words, and having the content worth no man's time, all inside a poorly drawn beat up cover. The amount of crap that comes from reading books for school is just stupid!

You want me to read? I'm reading on my computer. I don't need books. - DumbWays2DieFan

34 Health

Health is the dumbest thing ever no one likes it and we know to eat healthy and do all that

People will smoke or drink anyway and know the risk

It doesn't take a scientist to figure out that we need to eat healthy to be healthy

My teacher makes it terrible

35 Fly Fishing

Never heard of this and hearing its name it sounds quite pointless. - ParasN2000

I think fishing is the most pointless subject because I don't like it. haha

Let me just torture some small animals for no reason.

Fishing is a school subject? - AliciaMae

36 Drama

I’m in first period drama at my school, and I use the class to run around so I can pay attention in my other classes

School has enough drama - DumbWays2DieFan

Drama is actually the most stupidest class there ever is it’s like liberal arts in a nutshell.

Dumbways2diefan especially in the 21st centry mst of my classmates are spoiled dramatic idiots like boi I'm trying to get my werk done so maybe I can get an early graduate out of this hellhole we don't need more - xXbfdi_bhabieXx

37 Speech

Speech to me sounds quite useful as a subject as it is essentially going to be relevant to most people's lives
In everyday life and in careers. - ParasN2000

Cried so much in this class. Some people are naturally gifted in speaking and some (like me) are just not. They can actually fail you for this useless subject.

Special ed kids are usually forced to take this

It sucks because if you have stage fright you wont wanna say anything

That's not speech. Speech helps you with pronouncing words and talking to other people. Not being on stage. - Ilovestephanie

38 Computer Science

Computer Science is a bit pointless, they need to make it harder and drop the pre requisite of Chemistry

Quite pointless (Why computer has existed in the first place) but a good subject.

Even though not all of us wanna become website makers or whatever, it can change the world and its fun to mess around with This subject is an ok subject, but the useless ones are the ones like biology, chemistry, and algebra. - DumbWays2DieFan

39 French

Although it's good to be bilingual, the way French is taught in schools is ridiculous! Teachers only teach the grammar rules! Grammar rules won't help me understand, read, speak, and will barely help me write.

It's important to be able to speak a language other than English, whether it's French or another language. Learn outside the square!

Unless if you want to travel to france, this is next to pointless... I live in canada so I have to learn this subject

It's so useless I'm not going to travel to France anyway

40 Earth Science

It is basically middle school science and a course to make kids feel stupid. At my school they reach about the water cycle in the class. Pointless and it shouldn't exist. Biology is more useful than that joke of a course.

Why would anyone becoming a math teacher need to know about tectonic plates. And all of these small details we will just forget in the next ten years.

I love science! - ArcticWolf

41 Biology

Without understanding basic human, animal, and plant anatomy, chemistry and physics cannot be properly applied. In addition, possessing a basic knowledge of our body's systems and functions, we can if we really apply i,t customize aspects of our life to enjoy optimal health and well-being including but not limited to the following: diet, exercise, medications to avoid, remedies that work well, etc... - Listlover77

What is biology seriously! the only thing we do is learn about the animal kingdom and about our dna which is very boring. this subject doesn't have anything to offer for our future unlike physics and chemistry!

Completely pointless.

42 Logic

If logic could be taught then we would all be more intelligent. - ParasN2000

What the hell kind of class is this? Probably for people who don't have common sense.

Doesn't teach u logic just stupid maths - DumbWays2DieFan

So useless no one cares about debait

43 Keyboarding

Where in life am I going to use this. Not only is there literally no use for this, but it also wastes valuable class time. My teacher also does not teach us.

Many jobs require using a keyboard. It's obvious that it certainly is going to be used in most people's life. - Vegetable

What they should do is test you before they say "okay, you have to take this class."

This was something I was forced to do, got graded on and so forth. like boi I know how to type I can type faster and better with my right index finger and my left middle finger - xXbfdi_bhabieXx

I know how to type

44 Geology

It's so useful to look at rocks and see what kind of rock they are everyone will need this in their adulthood

Why do we even need to learn about rocks?

I hate rocks...

45 Local Language

You shouldn't have to pass the language that is only spoken in your country unless you want to live there! Its basically a dead language.

I was taught the wrong type of local language for my area learning the opposite of the countrys. I go out to a place they speak it and they all can speak English anyway! It will be wiped out in a few years

We already know how to speak English! - AliciaMae

preach - TheParable


I don't need to know about happy lives.

What's this? - LordDovahkiin

47 Cooking Classes

Ok this isn't really useless but why learn it in school why not later on in life or learn how to cook on your own at home there plenty of ways to learn it at home my school actually gives us cooking classes and call it food technology.

They just teach us how to make things like cake. teach us how to make healthy foods too like salad - DumbWays2DieFan

I hate this class.

Why do you have to take a cooking class again? :|

Well, I guess to make our cooking skills better... But... HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU BETTER!? - Torrent

48 Greek

See my previous post on Latin for a detailed explanation - Listlover77

The by far most pointless subjects, ever. I don't know if others schools teach this but in my school you have to study it for 2 years. It's worse than Latin, because we don't even share the same alphabet! Ridiculous.

49 Digital Literacy

I honestly thought this class was useless. What I learned in one semester is the equivalent of watching thirty minutes worth of YouTube tutorials. The only thing taught in this class that was actually useful was internet safety and some relevant laws regarding internet use. I ended up learning more about digital literacy in my math classes. - Mochi_Pochi

50 Media

Honestly, the most pointless and useless subject. This has to be the worst subject and even though it is optional, it sucks. Why would people want to learn to be able to predict the end of a film by the first 5 minutes of it. I really needed to know that the kid was the villain and you have to kill him or nuke a state just by seeing the door open. Thanks Media. You ruin the greatest things in life.

Media studies is uselses. I don't even put it on my CV.
