How EXACTLY will one use such an equation in his life? Unless it's Science-related, it's pretty much useless shit.And yet in their younger years everyone has to take maths regardless of their career choice, along with many other subjects like additional languages, geography, computing, science, art, history, and so on, of which only a few will be actually relevant and helpful later on in your life.
Welcome to the ever so wonderful and highly efficient system of education employed by today's blossoming world.
Here's a stick, go fight wild animals for food, then skin it for clothing and eat their raw flesh in your hut.
Oh wait, science gave you a house that doesn't fall into pieces when there's an earthquake.
I'm with you people on the whole 'education strips individuality, doesn't recognize unique cognitive abilities in individuals' etc, but to argue that things like science, history or even something as simple as geography aren't useful in life is kind of biased, don't you think?
Besides, after a while you seek education, it doesn't seek you. So to cynically point out that the system is somewhat rigid, is to blindly defy the fact that such a system is, above all, one hell of a luxury.
