Why don't young people see the value in learning?

April 2, 2007 10:18pm CST
Many kids always complain, "oh we'll never use algebra in real life" or "what's the point of learning chemistry?" or "history is boring." The classes they want to take seem to only focus on money management and taking out loans.. Life should not solely be about making money, isn't that a shallow existence? The point of learning those other subjects is to help in making you a broad individual who has knowledge in many different subjects, not just how to buy stocks and use credit cards!

it is because their parents did not teach them anything really of value aside from just making money,money,money,work,work,work AND WORK.for this young kids of today ,for them it is all about making money so they can go party and buy stuffs like their parents do.
