Why do they teach history? Read description
Why do people teach history in school for the entirety of your time IN school? It's a useless subject that clutters your mind, confuses you, and is just a hollow, empty grade that can drag you down and absorb your life.
Why do they yeah us history? So that we can teach others history. Why do we teach THEM history? So they can teach others history. It's an infinite loop mostly comprised of useless knowledge passed down through the generations that swells and wastes our time more and more. Who cares about Booker T. Washington? So he established a University, big whoop.
Now you might say "Establishing a University is a very big deal!" So. Freaking. What? That is nothing but a confusing dash of dirt being thrown into the glass of water that is my brain. Eventually, I'll be full of all this crap that school has taught me and I won't be able to get it out.
Facts like that literally will never affect me or my life in any way whatsoever. I don't care what anyone says, nobody will ever have a good reason of why I should be spending my youth learning about what old people did ten million years ago. Nobody will ever come up to me with a good reason of why I should waste my valuable, priceless time learning about something that doesn't affect my life.
So, that being said, answer me this, Ask.com users,
Why are they teaching this crap in school?
