Is it really fair for the government to dictate what a person must learn, in order to make themselves able to support their lives with money? It is somewhat a conspiracy, for I believe they railroad children into certain job types the country needs, by making certain requirements so stubbornly into the curriculum, like forcing a student to completely specialize in certain areas, regardless of their career path, such as Math.
The point of course is, the government railroads people into jobs they do not want, just because they think those jobs are the most available. I guess they think that capable students are not able to make their own decisions.

And while we're on the subject. I think that schools are just one big conspiracy. For example: when someone in my school has a headache or some other illness, they are sent off to the 'medical room' where they are taken to another little room that stores a ridiculous amount of 'pain killers.' (or 'brain' killers?!?!) Then when the student returns back to class, they always seem more willling to learn and quieter.....hmmm....could just be me acting all paranoid again, but doesnt that seem a little odd to you?

very true...quest, you need to quit complaining, you do realize that somebody "railroading" you or your mommy and daddy is the only reason youre sitting at a computer posting this, instead of actually working to survive?
i see your argument, and id agree with it wholeheartedly...if we were talking about it on the street while im trying to sell one line and 60 second novels and youre working your ass off for something else....but seeing how we're both spoiled and sitting on computers, it doesnt have too much merit

lets stay off math, thats not the point.
through school, certification/licesensing the gov does control our lives. THough these processes are good for determinging quality of certain professions, they should not be made mandatory to practice them.
