But honestly, I agree & also disagree with the idea of not teaching WW2 in school.
In school they do not go into detail about anything they talk about in history or talk about pointless stuff or even lie about it.
When I learned about WW2 I barely got anything useful or even worth knowing about, honestly. I'm sure there is actually stuff worth knowing about for WW2, but they don't actually tell us.

There is nothing wrong with the idea about learning other races & cultures especially to kids as early as elementary school.
But it's not a good idea to do that because of racist white kids tbh

I would remove any History class, or science class, because most of the information I learn is pretty useless to me, and for me. I would replace it with Recess, and beginning Guitar, and Beginning Band, so I can learn a new instrument besides Trumpet.

We need classes on how to think.

Geography, PE, Arts, Music, Religion. Boring and unnecessary at the same time.

I would replace religion specific classes with a "general religion class" where students are taught stuff from the popular religions instead of just focusing on one random religion and covering just a tiny amount of other religions. I think it's more important to know more about all the major religions and cultures surrounding them since students might be more aware of other cultures then since they would know more stuff about them.

I don't know about you guys but my school has this crap subject that we have to do everyday called Project Based Learning, where it's supposed to help us learn to work in a group to get bigger tasks down. Sure, teamwork skills are nice and is a great asset for future careers, but this subject has been nothing but hell.

They tell you that you have to split up work evenly, communicate in a variety of ways and devote yourself to every task. But sadly, none of this happens and teachers just seem like they are turning a blind eye.

Absolutely no one likes this subject because everyone ends up with a group they are either unhappy or unsafe with and if they were to report any negativity about the group, then it becomes even more unfair when they end up doing the whole project seperately.

What makes this worse is that we barely learn anything about this class. Teachers don't give us the information we need, rather, they give us the information that we have to "reasearch" about but really, it's just copying and pasting from Wikipedia to a Word.doc...

So if it were my choice, I'd like this subject to be thrown into the pits of hell, whence it came from.

Drop religion, media class, language class, general history class(we still need to learn history, but learning about ww2 for the 10th time? more diversity, thanks).

Classes I would never drop: Music(that was the whole joy of going to school for me), PE(Seriously, we need exercise some times)

And then I would've liked to have an ethics class(in stead of religion maybe? and some schools do have this) and a class on private economy(not that it's difficult, but for a 15 year old, it could be nice to learn a little beforehand).

If you don't like art then go to a high school that doesn't have it in it's programs. Also, both archery and Kendo are sports. So if you want to have and try it then maybe you should ask your PE teacher if you can arrange something whit a Kendo or Archery club, that way you'll get to try it out


My daughter shot her teacher in archery class.
