Most Pointless School Subjects

Cazaam

The Top Ten

1 P.E.

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

My rant on P.E

P.E should have an extra e because it is ridiculous! The teacher tells you that you have to play instead of staring and he/she gets mad. Then, you pretend you are playing these boring sports when you're not. The gym teacher still notices and keeps stopping the game. You are on the gym floor for a long time before you get on the stage while the other part of your team plays. You still sweat if you're pretending to play because the gym is not air conditioned. After the class is over, the stupid athletic people say that only a few people on their team did something for the team. Then they talk about it during a test, and the teacher tells them to shut up. (be quiet in non bad words) They say stuff like, ''The only ones PLAYING were blah and blah", and then their friend or friends agree with him/her. They repeat it for a few minutes, and forget about it an hour later.

Don't get me started on the pennies. They always come off your shoulder and too hard to put ...more - ShopkinsLover

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

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.

When are we really going to need this in life I am in year 8 at the moment and I want to be a Fashion Stylist and when will I need this?

3 Religious Education

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.)

It really isn't very useful unless you want to be a professor of religious studies other than that it has no use beyond understand certain religious beliefs and the history of that belief. - germshep24

Should be number 1

Its literally like being told children's stories

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

I've already commented on this in a similar section (see ELA); Perhaps schools could offer specific types of literature: Modern realistic fiction, Victorian Literature, etc... Not such a bad idea. Just so you know, though, English Literature is the convergence of all other major world languages and noted playwrights and scholars developed syntactic and semantic rules still relevant to written grammar today. That's why it's studied in-depth, more especially in the United States. It ties back to the history of the Norman invasion, without which you wouldn't be writing in English, but in French. - Listlover77

The entire class is pointless. Learning grammar correctly in your natural language is important, but not literary terms, etc. Literary terms, literature, and essay writing with citations are pointless. Why should we have to learn about literature, especially literature from hundreds of years ago. You will never need it in your life.

Completely useless beyond the middle school level. Teachers always want us to pull some greater meaning out of our *sses when even famous authors say that there is none.

5 Dance

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

I am the best at dance ever

Even though I like dance, it is really pointless

V 23 Comments
6 History

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

History encompasses a much broader area of study including Language, Sociology, psychology, culture, religion,geography, exploration, literature,etc... because it is an ongoing record backed by specialized scientists: archaeologists, geologists, linguists, sociologist, psychologists, etc... who track patterns and trends and discover sources and methods used by various people and what defined or expanded their boundaries to cultivate culture or dis-ban it. Not only is it fascinating, it also possesses more practical applications than most may expect: GPS anyone? Without the intersection of science and history (including geographers and early explorers who developed tools of innovation and navigation), you may not be holding a Smartphone in your hand. - Listlover77

Why do we need to know what happened hundreds of years ago? Global history is the worst. Why Should I care what happened in a different country 1000 years ago?

Bruh I have a 78% average in history and my moms taking my Xbox away for a year... ):

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

Really it’s a subject! More useless then dance

8 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.

Choir sucks so much

I HATE IT

9 Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
10 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

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

Come on! Nobody uses Latin today!

It pointless

The Contenders

11 Problem-based learning
12 Art

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

Most useless subject, in what part of your life are you going to do art if you're not going to become an artist

13 Study Skills
14 Human Geography

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?

Essay after essay, I have to write essays nonstop, when I'm finished with one, there is another, there is more essays than planes coming in and out of Atlanta Hartsfield international airport

15 Math

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

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.

It's actually very important. You need to learn the basics and learn about the money related parts. But yes, some of it is actually pretty pointless.

When you are a adult, just use a calculator! You don't need to do the work! - TheILikeTrainsKid

16 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?

Spanish is boring useless and horrible and lets call my teacher Mr Wrestler man because he was a famous wrestler is sooo boring my god

The most useless subject ever because what's the point of learning what someones favourite T.V. show or what their favourite song is when all you really need to learn is how to introduce yourself and some simple grammar

17 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.

18 Gender Studies

Literally does not help you in any way whatsoever

Didn't know it classified as a school subject.

A study about imaginary genders. Wow. - CartoonCriticizer

The concept doesn't exist

19 Handwriting

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

We know how to write u can do this at home

If you are actually so bad at writing that you NEED to take classes post-elementary, there is little hope to you. Only defense is that I THINK it is optional.

The reason I wanted to break my hand. To get out of this abomination of a subject.
10 years later, my handwriting is still atrocious. Proof it doesn't work.
Who writes joined up anyway? - Cazaam

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

Bruh this subject is cool! - ArcticWolf

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

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

22 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?

23 Product Design

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

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 ACTUALLY HAVE THIS CLASS GRAPHIC DESIGN AND I HATE IT

24 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.

No one uses chemistry in the future

26 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.

30 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

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?

Language Arts are totally useless. What's the meaning of literary books? At least, nonfiction has some kind of a meaning. And what is the use of all those poetry and writing? Nothing.
And what about studying literature all the time? frustrating.

31 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

32 Physics

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

It’s very useless

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

33 Reading

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

I always get great grades in reading - ShopkinsLover

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!

I suck at reading

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.

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

38 French

useless

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

French for me by far is the most useless subject. I'm a freshman and I don't need French to become a Neuroscientist! My French teacher even talks to us in French and we have no idea what she talking about. She made us write a paragraph in French in a test and my classmates left that out. The test paper was out of an 80 but on my grade card it was out of a 100. I used to do so well in French last year with my old French teacher. ( My main class has two French groups since a lot of classmates and my other class chose French. My main class has 24 students and other class has 25 students. )

This is not pointless. If you’re bilingual it opens up many career opportunities, because you get to work with clients who speak French, or other languages. English isn’t so important, not everyone lives in America. Maybe geography isn’t pointless. Y’all should learn it more.

Why would people want to learn to be able to predict the end of a film by the first 5 minutes of it.

When is the subject of torsion ever going up in a corporate boardroom? Or even a poolroom?

Such crap. all you do is sit round and get yelled at by a teacher while the "popular" kids do the work. this is a useless lesson and doesn't even teach kids anything important. whoop, we know how to make a crappy lamp.
