but after you have learned the basics, whats the point if you dont want to go into science learning about cellular respiration. after elementary, school should become more specailized.

At school you learn to develop the few skills that you have from primary. You cannot expect to go from 'EZY A-B-C' or 'Sam has 3 sweets and takes away 2, how many are left?', you must develop these skills further. Its like asking 'Why does it take three years to do law?', why not skip the second and third year? The fact remains, you need school to develop the very little amount of knoweldge gained from primary school.

Everyone needs to be educated to a fairly high standard because you rarely know what you REALLY want to pursue until Y10/Y11 really.

Also, better educated people = better economic growth woo!

of course not, algebra and geometry, trig and calculus, would clearly still be there. but science, unless you are really interested in it, doesnt need to get anymore indepth than basics of chemistry and biology!

How is anyone ever to devolp a desire to delve deeper into the sciences if you only teach them the boring basics?

most of the modern world is based on physics done in the 19th and 20th century.

I personally think that many schools are the most intellectually stifling things ever. They try to squash your identity into a fraction of a class, unimportant and just the same as everyone else.

On the other hand, schools are good for social interactions.
Sometimes!
