I believe that all main (non-elective) subjects in school are important. My arguments for each are:
Math: We need to learn how to do mathematics in everyday life and for projects only done occasionally
Science: All humans need to know how the world around them works. I recently spoke to someone who didn't know how many natural satellites the Earth has. They know now, but it is still appalling.
English: We must learn to speak our national language fluently and without grammatical errors. This is simply because they make writing look sloppy.
History: "Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it," George Santayana
Foreign Language: We live in a world where countries are far more interconnected than ever. Speaking another language helps people to be successful in that world.

Not all subjects are neccasirly important. Some classes are extra or opintal and Mr camera says that you are a nub. Sorry the trolls have taken me over you do not have to pass to pass the grade.

I said MAIN subjects, math, science, English, foreign language history. If you think the only purpose of learning is to pass the test, it is just proving that there is something deeply wrong with our education system, or at least the one you have.

Just because you know how to read doesn't meant you know all of ELA. And I never said anything didn't need reform.

I did research, but after he didn't take it seriously, it would be hard to wedge in without an acceptance.

i think this debate is not even a proper debate. No research, no rules, no nothing. just some personal thoughts, one trying to take it seriously the other, so not.

Of course all school subjects are important. How else will you get into college?

It is Whedon, likr the director of Firefly, The Avengers, etc. But that isn't important. What is important is that our educatiom system didn't make it clear that the Earth goes around the Sun, not anything else. This is basic fact, I was apologizing that he, through no fault of his own, has been failed by the education system he attended in the regard of science.

Mr. Trexfire is nothing but a narcissist. I believe that his efforts are solely to prove that he is superior to all others. I disprove of him. However, there is a more important issue to address. Mr. Wheldon is clearly attacking Mr. Trexfire without warning. His claims are yet to be proven and are detrimental to the debate. I enjoy a civilized debate, not one with constant attacks. He even goes so far as to attack Mr. Trexfire's education system. Mr. Wheldon cannot contain himself in the face of other opponents.

In this case, important and necessary are synonomous.

Important or necessary? If you were to say "all subjects in school should be mandatory/required because..." then I'll accept this :)
