Because society builds up prom to the point where it's supposed to be the pinnacle of your time in high school. How ridiculous is that? My ex-girlfriend literally said that prom was supposed to be the second most important day in her life right behind her wedding. I'm gonna go out on a limb there and THAT IS NOT HEALTHY!

While the finer points of diagramming may be useless, there are some benefits.

For example, recognizing that a noun is the object of a preposition will help you use the right verb. (E.g. "The boat with the passengers is departing" vs. "The boat with the passengers are departing") Although it can become useless if too much time is spent on diagramming.

Saying the only difference is luck is completely oversimplifying things. While luck is a factor, success also depends on choosing the right risk, preparing, working hard, having the right skills, etc.

If you have a passion for teaching but pass it up because of the pay, you don't have a passion for teaching. A passion is a strong feeling to do something you love, regardless of other factors surrounding it, and that includes money. I think you think that anybody who wants to teach has a passion for it, but it's only the people who actually become one even when they know they won't be getting the best salary.

But people have passions for many things. What if you have a passion for teaching and a passion for business or medicine? When deciding on which one to go into for a career, financial security does have to weigh in at some point.

Thats the thing, it doesn't matter how brilliant you are. If you don't have the passion and patience for teaching, you shouldn't teach. If the money discourages you from pursuing a career in education, education was never what you were meant to do.

Except there are people who do have a passion for teaching but pass it up because it doesn't pay the same or hold the same prestige as becoming a doctor, lawyer or engineer. Right now, in general, American teachers don't stack up at all to international teachers and part of that is because it's not respected or exclusive as a career. What would help? Better pay.

Here's a hint: If you worked as hard as they have to get really good at something, you could probably be just as talented.

Agreeing with what other people have said, but algebra and math in general also helps develop your problem solving skills and number manipulation skills that can be used in a variety of fields. Sure, in manual labor it's not going to help much, but you don't need to go to school to learn how to be a manual laborer

NW'd because I've known about the magic of defenestration for a long time. The Defenestration of Prague was a badass moment in history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De...tion_of_Prague
