what is the most pointless school lesson ever?? for me its r.e, whats ur choice
I would have to say Arty drawing subjects. I think forcing people to do it who cannot be bothered or are just dreadful anyway, is harsh. I'm not saying it should be scrapped, but an option.

I disagree with people who said RE. It helps you understand morals an other religions, so at least when people have a go at religion they could back up their arguement with a little knowledge instead of a worthless rant.

Well... it is not forgotten, that is true. It helped me a lot when I had to learn Portuguese in a very short time, and it improves general language skills because it is so bloody complicated but still logical.
But I would not say it is relevant... what do you mean with that?

I enjoyed RE, learning about other people's beliefs.

The most pointless subject was clearly design technology, making the worst CD rack ever was all I ever did.

Thats fair enough, your obviously good at art therefore your talent should be nurtured. What I'm saying is for people with no talent it must the the most useless thing to do when you could be doing something else which is aiding your education.

Probably aspects of P.S.E. and R.E.
Not so much the idea of the lessons, but the repeated teaching of the same subjects -for R.E.-having Christianity shoved down our throats year after year. For P.S.E- repeatedly studying the same topics with no new interest or slant, where invariably an answer is always 'peer-pressure'.
I think they should be teaching us some slightly more useful and practical information -such as how to fill in a tax-return, how to use a washing machine etc etc.

I dont intend to practice for a long time. I've to take over my dads buiness when he retires. Its just a way of saving huge sums of money really and something to fall back on if I make a hash of running the business.

Tax return is certainly a good idea. Not so sure about washing machines though...lol. I'm sure someone in your family could do that, its not that difficult.

*chuckles*. I took Resistant Materials and we're doing that at the moment.

Mine is basically a wonky, neglected 'half-box' and a slightly irrelevant but all the same, quite stylish sword that will eventually be attatched for 'viewing final product' and then taken off to play with, the storage never to be seen again.

Yes I know, it was just an example. -Basically things we'll need to be able to do later on.
