  • Life Skills. It was pretty much a health class but it was just called something different and the next semester I had to take health. I was so mad what was the point.

  • speach. where you had to get up in front of everyone and give a speach about something the teacher told you to care about. even my teacher told me it was pretty much pointless, even though it was required.

  • As much as I hated most of the classes in high school I did understand the purpose for most of them though I will admit there was some unecessary material sometimes lol. I asked a teacher once why we needed classes like social studies and he said it's not so much that we need to know the facts of what they teach us, it's the opportunity to open our minds to parts of the world we aren't exposed to and create a new way of thinking. Same with advanced math classes with equations we'll never use. It's all about the way of thinking not simply memorizing the material. I mean some elective classes like ceramics were pretty useless but thats why they were elective classes I guess lol.
