Why is this type of thought still circulating? Nowadays there are many jobs that use mathematics, and treating it as something horrible, hated, or unnecessary seems dumb to me.
Want to know what jobs have virtually 0% unemployment? Astronomers and engineers. Want to know what they have to know? Math. Why do so many people treat algebra and other forms of higher math as though it's completely unnecessary, pointless, and dumb, when nowadays it isn't? I see so many people fussing over this and that for their kids to learn, but never math. Do you agree that this needs to change?
