I believe students should be able to choose their own classes, as long as they have learned the basics required to do mostly anything related to society (basic math [addition, subtraction, division, multiplication] basic English [Alphabet, basic writing skills, basic vocabulary, etc..]).

Once kids have proved mastery of the previously stated subjects, they will be given their own choice of subject and sub-categories in those subjects. Examples:

Science - Chemistry
Math - algebra
History - Early modern history
English - Poetry

Before anyone starts going on about how there is a reason certain classes are required, or people would become far dumber if this was done or something like that. It's very rare to find someone who remembers most or even half of the stuff they learned in all their classes. I highly doubt that anyone who even reads this post will remember everything they learned in all their classes. Even the people who made the requirements probably don't even meet them themselves. The very idea of the requirements expected from everyone is highly illogical and a waste of time. I could spend months learning a subject, getting good grades than forgetting everything I learned. Or I could go to a class about something I LIKED, get good grades and remember everything I learned.

Speaking of grades, not only would this idea be good for enjoyments sake, but grade-wise it'd definitely improve many peoples grades, which in return has many future benefits, such as (Higher ratio of graduates, higher college enrollment ratio, etc.)

Students have a vision towards destiny, but still need that pair of eyes to look deep into it.
