People who say they only learned useless facts at school are generally stupid

I see a lot of post saying, I only learned that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell, but I still don't know how to do taxes.

I think that people who actually believe things like this are pretty stupid. Take tax for example.

My maths teacher tried to teach us concepts like compound interest, explaining that these were important concepts when talking about money and credit. Most people just glaze over or say that's boring.

The simple fact is, most people were taught a lot at school, but they just didn't take it in, it's an attitude problem more than a what is on the curriculum problem.

I challenge people who say this, don't send your child to school and see how they turn out.
