Top 10 Stupidest School Subjects

The Top Ten
1 Gym (P.E.)

Seriously, because of this class I'm starting to get depression. I used to be a very happy, bubbly, and funny person, but then P.E. got tougher and more boring. Kids began to cry, people began to get injured - basically hell on earth. I always finished last in P.E. and always got teased for it, despite being head of my class in everything else. I had to resort to locking myself up in the school bathroom and crying while people weren't looking! It was very hard at school. Everyone liked P.E. except me. They are just trying to get all the stupid jocks to feel good at something. If you devote your life to games, you'll never accomplish anything.

Good grief, P.E. was more inactive than I thought. If time in P.E. were spent effectively, it would be less time for explanations, more time for games. No mile run, no tests, and no excessive lecture times. Lockers need stalls for the tubby people. My worst P.E. class mate was HAMZAH Ass-lay. He is a troll with a long head who won't even stop yelling when he has the chance to. Please, I would like to talk behind his back.

Yeah I'm one of the respected kids at school I mean I'm not popular or a jock, but I am respected because I always get top grades in the school. When we had to run laps I was dead tired by 2 laps! The teacher made me keep on going! I said some comment about the human body being more tired due to heat and lack of water and the teacher made me run 2 more laps than the rest of the class.

I know that people need to know how to exercise to stay healthy, but couldn't this just be a unit in Health? Let the people who want to do sports do sports, and let the rest of us live in peace. It also uses up money on equipment which could be used for books, classroom upgrades, etc. And, at least in my school, you pretty much get an A if you just show up.

2 RE (Religious Studies)

I have to go to CCD against my own will, and I'm not even a believer! What's the point, anyway? It's not really all that useful when you grow up. You don't have to go to church or even know what Christmas is and still celebrate Christmas and Easter. It's a free country, do what you want. But the worst thing is is that sometimes, kids get impressions that Jewish people are bad and start being mean to kind people because they learned that "Jewish people killed Jesus! They ruined the world! " At least it's only a small percentage. In life, we learn lessons, and we don't HAVE to learn it from a book written by primitive men.

You need to know and respect other people's religions. If you want them to join yours the best way is to be kind, respectful, give them knowledge and show them your knowledge of religions. This subject is important. And just because I am a Christian doesn't mean I don't respect and/or hate other people with their religions. I believe I must know their religion first and then try to change them from their heart.

Why are atheists forced to learn about religion? I know it promotes tolerance and respect, which is wonderful and all, but I already think others can believe what they want and respect their choices. Why the hell (pardon the pun) is this subject mandatory?

Honestly...what even is the point? If someone wants to teach someone something is both useless and not important, do that crap on your own time, don't waste resources that could be going to much, MUCH greater causes.

3 Art

I'm a massive anime fan and I picked art hoping I could get better at drawing anime. But when I handed in a drawing of goku and naruto, which I spent over 5 hours on, my racist art teacher ripped it up and have me a detention. Which bothered me so much is that I am half Japanese and my girlfriend is Japanese too, and my teacher knows it. Banning anime could be considered racist, because it's part of Japanese culture. That's like banning the 4th of July in America. And also, it annoys me so much how they don't consider anime art, but you can literally splash a bit of paint on a piece of paper and they will say that's art. I almost got suspended for calling my art teacher a racist b******, but it was totally worth it.

In elementary it was a mandatory course. The class was a bit fun, however we couldn't actually "express ourselves" with art, we could only try to imitate the piece or style the teacher gave us.

Also I had a terrible teacher all 5 years (she's the only art teacher in the school in my time). I remember she ripped a student's work to shreds because she didn't approve of it. Another time she didn't let another kid go to the bathroom and ended up peeing herself in class. On another occasion she screamed directly at my sister's friend's ear because "she didn't hear the directions." And�" okay I'll stop. But really I'm trying to say that for me it wasn't a fun class really.

There are hardly any jobs because its hard to get a job in so people think of it as a hobby and many other subjects people have no interest in getting a job in. I have no interest becoming a scientist. Becoming a doctor, nurse, vet is something not everyone would want to get a job in because you have to be a brainiac. It does not mean we will have jobs in McDonalds there are tons of jobs you can get without being a brainiac like doctors and scientists. Working in factories, hotels, office job, hairdressing.

I like it sometimes, but I hate the history they teach in it. In 5th grade, we always watched a fun movie on the artist's life. That was what made me love it. But the thing I hate was, again, the history. Why do we have to read about some stupid guy who drew 3 circles on a paper and suddenly go famous for that? No seriously, people did that. There's a difference between modern art and purely not trying. Anyway, I hope grade 6 art goes well…

4 English

Honestly, the basics of English is all you really need. Just grammar and spelling. But upper leveled courses just have to put in annotating, understanding the meaning of literature, reading large heck novels, learning sentence structure, determining if a word is a noun/verb/adjective. Why do I have to understand what this one line of a poem means? Why do I have to read a 200 page book before 3 weeks and take a test over it? This is all pretty useless. I just need to understand basics and I'll be through with my life. Plus you're going to judge a foreign person by their terrible grammar?

Unless you do not know how to spell a lot of words or know enough grammar, then there is no point in learning this class.

If English is not your first language, then you should probably learn this class if you want to know more, but for a English speaker, you just have to know those two things I mentioned above.

I would suggest putting a first grader in this class instead of a high schooler who most likely knows a lot of spelling and grammar by then.

There is no point of having middle schoolers and high schoolers having to learn this class because they already know most of the basics by then.

Who really needs to be in this class are the 8 year olds who have not yet developed their spelling and grammar.

We are writing comparative essays on films and novels. When will I ever have to compare some bull texts in the real world. Seriously, what jobs out there require you to do this. And, why do teachers put more thought into a book than the author. The red curtain is red because the author said it was, the end. Don't go analysing every word on the page of a book and every scene in a movie.

Out of 10,000 people, who seriously cares about shakespeare, romeo and juliet, or "what the author is subconsciously trying to tell people about what is wrong with society". The worst is that not only do we have this course from grade 1 to 12, but that post secondary establishments actually LOOK at the grades students get in this stupid course.

5 Music

I do not understand why this must be a school subject. I do not like performing in front of others, and I am abominable at playing instruments that involve more than 1 note, and all this first semester I didn't even know how to even play just 1 note on a guitar. I only know how to play Mayonnaise, literally. All I need are multiple empty jars of them and and equal amount of rocks. It's so much simpler, all you need to do is smash the jars with the rocks at different strengths to emit noises at different frequencies to make a song.

I was about to become valedictorian, until my stupid music teacher gave me a B+, just because I skipped singing in church. All my straight A's (no A-'s) down the drain because of something as useless as music. I personally think that music should be optional. I mean it's like we want to become musicians. Even if you do, you only learn how to sing lame songs and the only instrument you play are the bells. I could ramble on all day about how music is the stupidest subject ever, but I'm just going to stop here.

I agree that Music is pointless. All the years I have done it, I have not learn one thing. I have not learnt how to play any instruments, or to sing. The only thing that the teacher made us do was learn the recorder. That was it. He gave us a recorder and a music book and taught us one song. I still have no idea how to play it. Most schools have actual classes to learn music. I don't think it is necessary to have music as a class.

This is my experience of being in music:

Every trimester there is some stupid singing performance where we are expected to sing harmonies and sound effing perfect. Kids are NOT professional singers and this should NOT BE AN EXPECTATION.
music teacher yells at us half of the time and then yells about how we are wasting music time when she's the one wasting our time!

WORST THING ABOUT THIS: me and my friend are pretty good singers and we decided to audition for a talent show in our school (because why not? ). the music teacher was the judge and let one girl perform 2 different acts while me and my friend didn't "get in". everyone was really confused as to why we didn't make it. our teacher has a bunch of "favorites" and all of the performers were asian (chinese, korean, japanese, etc...)

6 Sociology

What kind of subject is this?

7 Math

Basic Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, time, money, and word problems. That's all the math you really need to live a happy life. I'm pretty sure I could go through my whole life and NOT need to know how to calculate pi. Also, ever hear of this magical device called a calculator?! Use it. You probably have one on your phone.

Right now I'm learning about half life. I mean I didn't even know that was a type of math the only experience I've had with half life is the video game! I don't get it at all and will probably be failing pretty soon. Example: Find the half life of the isotope when x=243432.344 squared.

I don't know why math have such bad reputation but serious I just think it is essential to our universal understanding of a system. For example calculus, when I can't solve a problem I will kept think in anytime even when I sleep and when one day I figure out the obscure meaning of the problem I began to see the solution and felt relief

Math is so useless. You can use a calculator or a scientific one. My teacher always says that "Math is important because you are going to learn calculus in the future...'. No one uses calculus or other complicated math stuff ever (other than school).

8 Drama

I love acting. Like LOVE. But it's pretty much teaching the bad kids to lie even better than they already do and kids like me to enhance my skills.

It teaches you what expression you must have on your face while telling a lie. Literally.

How will it help me become a engineer?

9 Urdu
10 Citizenship

Is this a real class?

"Why important? "

The Contenders
11 Biology

I've never learned true biology, but it sounds cool.

What is biology

12 Latin

Modern languages like French, German and Spanish SHOULD be taught in schools. At least they are actually spoken in the world and are used in many good businesses, but Latin? It's a dead language! Nobody speaks it anymore! So WHY THE HELL would you actually teach it?! All classical languages should be scrapped from the education system and replaced with French German or Spanish. Latin is useless in every sense of the word!

Though learning this language provides a lot of background knowledge for many root words, it is the official language of zero nations, and is in fact a first language to no one on Earth.

If you learn Latin before you learn English it will actually HELP YOU when you are trying to speak English

It works for me and it works for my teacher as well.

Only 100 People in the WORLD speak it. the only country that has it As an official language is the tiny Vatican City.

13 Dance

I hate dance and drama, but I have to pick dance, as the worst one out of them both. All of my friends know since I was very young dance is NOT for me. It is embarrassing when all the other girls love to dance and are good at it, but there's me, looking like a fool with a miserable face on. Usually I'm a happy girl but when I walk into that dance studio, you see my face change completely lol. Can anyone agree?

Dance Should be an optional subject for those who love Dancing. Just like me.
It is stupid to make it compulsory as it is not useful in practical life for everyone.

Worst subject except P.E.! I'm shy so I hate to dance and we don't need dancing for anything.This is not optional in my school and that makes it even worse!

Why is this even a subject?

14 Professional Communications

Boaring propaganda and lesions on why a ba is nessisary also a chance for idiots to act stupid. And a stupid "news" activity.

15 Health

You guys can kill me for saying this, but all of the previous things on here can actually be interesting at least some of the time. But health is completely useless, even if you are an aspiring doctor and such. Text books just recite things that we already know and have known since when we could talk. For example, it doesn't take a god damn rocket scientist to know that in order to have good mental health, you need to feel happy. And it doesn't take an astro-physicist to know that in order to have good physical health, you should eat enough fruit and such. The only thing that this class and the textbooks do is recite completely random crap that we've either learned already or just know from experience. Basically, it's boring and I do not find that anything I've learned in this stupid class is new or interesting.

16 Foreign Languages

Foreign language education in school is a good idea, but in my country, a huge failure. To really learn a language you have to be interested and put a lot of effort in to practice. Most kids will not give the effort required, or if they're especially busy even have the time to practice. In most cases students will forget almost everything they learned of the other language within a couple years.

So what happens is most students are taught enough to get by if they were to travel in a country that spoke the language, and enough grammar to make basic sentences. Unfortunately this is never enough to actually penetrate the language or say anything they might really say in life, this only comes from being interested in your spare time.

The often cited benefits of language learning are far too deep into it for the lax western education system to get anything out of it.

Also the most commonly taught languages: Spanish and French in English-speaking countries, are mostly ...more

I have to take French and I hate it. I'm getting crappy marks even though I work my butt off, my teacher picks favourites and I am not one of them, the teacher is mean... I hate French. come on even half the French teachers can't actually fully speak the language

Studies show that learning other languages is the second most useful thing to learn?

Another pointless subject. Why bother learning other languages when everyone speaks English? Dang

17 Botany

Why study something that at the end we don't in consideration?

Nature and trees are not fun it is so boring

Plants are cool.

18 History

Sure learning it may prevent me from being doomed to repeat it. But I should learn about certain people over others? Why not learn everyone who fought for World War II? Because I'm too busy with other school subjects and other things in life. The only place I will find this useful is in it's own class. And it's all in the past, you can't change the past, nor will it teach you the future.

"Fools who don't respect the past are doomed to repeat it,"-Nico Robin

Those of you who said "They're all dead anyway," let me tell you something! Many of those people who are "all dead anyway" died in terrible wars like world war II. Do you want another world war? Learn form history and stop it from repeating itself. Thank you for reading.

How is this this far down on the list? Social studies is horrible! Its stupid and pointless. You aren't gonna go 20 years from now "Oh no! I don't remember what the capital of Maine is! Now I can't pay my taxes! Besides they're all dead anyway.

When we study about The Post-Medieval Period in India I. E when British ruled India, one kid keeps saying "Come on, they're so nice" And others fight back and half of the class gets wasted.

19 Exploratory
20 Geography

Canada speaking here, the way we were taught geography was dumb. half this course was inaccurate information about global warming and how solar panels are very "environmentally friendly" (yeah right) and how everyone should have environmentally friendly electricity free homes.

The other half dealt with actual geography and is probably okay. Kids should know what the capital of every province is, but also the course should consider the rest of the world. In Canada, students are taught absolutely nothing on any subject that doesn't concern Canada. You don't know where Australia or Africa is on the world map? You think Europe is a country? It's OK, as long as you know the capital of Nunavut.

How is this ever gonna help me in the future? THERE's NO WAY! I hate music, art, literature but nothing beats geography.

Just because Canada teaches Geography like that doesn't mean all schools teach it like that.

That's for sure. Geography is unnecessary and useless. Geography is nothing.

21 Algebra

Honestly, in real life nobody ever does something like, 13x + seriously...let's just say somebody wants to figure out the cost of an amount of pies if each costs 10, just see how much it is! You sell TEN PIES! OR JUST COUNT UP THE AMOUNT! You don't need to do a whole equation! Life is easier without algebra...And also, who is gonna use 13x + 4(x - 67) + (89x - 14)2 + 15
In a REAL WORLD PROBLEM!?!?!? Just stating my opinions

Useless, so what if you don't know a number?

Answer for x x= stupid

22 French

This is the worst! we have to learn the cringiest stories and I hate it so much that I don't care I'm spelling things wrong. In fact it is known as Tuesday TORTURE in my school.

French is NOT stupid. Whoever added this is absolutely ignorant.

23 Music Appreciation
24 German
25 Russian

Stupid Russian boyfriend from military school, still lovin the soviets.
