Only important subjects should be mandatory and choice of subjects should be at maximum

MrBurns2017

I think that important subjects should exist in the system, but only to a certain time. Here is how I see the ideal education system. Primary School ============ No homework. No foreign language course unless you are in a non-english speaking country or in a country where it is highly desirable to know an additional language (like in Canada which has many French speakers and recognizes French as their second official language). 3 subjects at most. Maths should be compulsory and the ot...

backwardseden
NKaloms

Here's a portion of George Carlin's famous skit and he's 100% correct. I can't use all of the skit because there's far too many curse words. When it comes to B.S., big-time, major league B.S., you have to stand in awe, in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest B.S. story ever t...
