Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of science, but why do we have to learn about useless things at school? It's cool if you teach me what organs I have or how to fix something, or at least something useful to society. But why do school insist on teaching kids about quantum physics, atoms and other practically useless chemistry stuff. Solving equations won't help me discover alternative energy or build something useful. I think this is exactly why nobody respects american education. It's all a waste of budget if you ask me.
