    Maybe because it is the job of schools to educate.

    It's important to know the basics of how the world works around you. Some students might find they they love Algebra or Chemistry and end up making math or chemistry their major in university. Also, not knowing the basics makes you fall behind quickly. It can be difficult to catch up to others if you don't have a solid foundation of knowledge!

    The answer is simple. Take a look around you. Everything that you see: cars, houses, your phone, etc. wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have knowledge of these things. So quit complaining about it and keep on studying

    they make you? I don't think so. You always have the option of dropping out of school, getting a GED and starting your career at McD's,. Maybe in a few years of flipping burgers you can move up to maintenance. You know, cleaning the restrooms, changing lightbulbs, taking out the used fryer grease.. etc

      If you want A BETTER JOB in that real world, then you need to go to college. And you'll need Algebra II, English, social studies, humanities, etc to get that degree to compete in today's job market. Else, you'll be moving up that McD's ladder

    To provide you with basic knowledge. The chem and math you get are not exactly advanced level information. We do want to have an educated and knowledgeable citizenry if we can. Your right to vote means that you ought to have basic knowledge of things that might matter, and surprisingly, understanding of how the world is seen to function is useful for decision-making.

    They may seem useless in the real world, but classes like this are what get students interested in pursuing STEM majors.

    They can be important depending on what field you go into. If you don't go to university, you won't likely need to know these subjects, but further education still helps you grow as a person.
