When we consider every subject taught in school (both academic and athletic), which one in particular rises above the rest? Which subject is the most vital for shaping a desirable future for students? Every subject is uniquely important, but which one is the most practical and applicable to everyday life? Which subject taught in school sticks with us the longest, and is used most often in everyday endeavours? I'll start off: Mathematics. Reason being because it is a fundamental basis for almost every aspect of life. It finds its way into almost every type of career. It is applied in regular encounters all the time. It is possibly the only course that is not subjective. There are plenty other reasons as well, of course. Note: I apologize if this is in the wrong forum.
