Most Useless Topics or Subjects In School


The Top Ten

1 Languages

I learn Irish, English and choice language (mine is Spanish) at school and I speak Japanese at home. I'm only in first year so Spanish is all new and Irish and Spanish get muddled in my head. Please, please don't do this to us, school. And no one speaks Irish in my area so damn decide what language to teach in schools.

French, Spanish, German... total waste of time, nowadays everybody knows English - yatharthb

What purpose does learning Latin do for me to be a director?

I have Spanish every single day at school. - Catacorn

3 Geometry

I am not saying that it is boring, it is simply useless in life - yatharthb

Representing the square of 5.872 on the number line is simply useless - yatharthb

Because I can totally see my 30 year old self using 6th year geometry.

We all know what a squares and triangles are. - FrankP

4 Number Systems

Cannot be used in real life

-31/872+8/111 why the hell they exist? - yatharthb

5 Grammar
6 Algebra

I legitimately have NEVER used Algebra outside of a classroom in my entire life. Well, except when I am doing homework. - wubbalubbadubdub

Seriously, who actually uses this in real life?

In what situation in life will I need to use this and how? - Persian

I honestly will probably never use most algebra outside school.

7 Religion

We should learn how to not discriminate before going into so much detail about how a certain religion eats its dinner.

8 Civics
9 Drama

Language, letter writing, and grammar? Geometry? Good job trying to find a job.

10 Economics

The Contenders

11 English

There's really no point to this class. The things we learn are rarely ever helpful for the real world.

It's very useful

We don't need it we already know it. it does not takes 12 years to study how to speak fluent english. but I love the stories and the poems

It’s useless when you are fluent and live in America or some other English speaking country

12 Gym Class

This should only be for fat people. - Connor360

13 Calculus
14 Latin

A dead language so no one uses it now

In Sweden/From Sweden can you get the books: Latin en introduktion and Vivat Lingua Latina. The book Latin For Dummies is still selling world wide. Plus youtube users like latintutorial keeps it alive and artists such as Enya and Evanescence and even Helloween (Laudate Dominum) seems to have/have had quite an inspiration for the originall romance language out of them all. P.S Latin is still used today and I do not mean just in science. You do know right that Italian French, and Spanish (just to mention a few) are all Latin DIALECTS. In Sweden are Swedish, Norwegian and Danish dialects with each other and Skånska is a mix of Danish and Swedish. Quoth John Lennon: Don't hate what you don't understand. P.SS Gutiska Razda (not to be confused with Gutniska Razda, as well as Vandalic) is still being used sooo...
