Someday, we'll figure out why young men think the world should organize itself around them and their wishes. Then we might be able to stop school shootings, a lot of traffic deaths and some of the other nonsense they do. Now- you've never been an adult, so you don't know what you'll need as an adult. But a lot of adults, including parents, employers and educators have been you age, and they know what you might need to create a good life for yourself. Some of it is to make you an informed voter and a good citizen. School is not entirely vocational or practical. Some of the things you are supposed to learn are how to comprehend information, evaluate it and apply it. You are supposed to learn how to reason, and how to have empathy for others. Those abilities will take you a lot farther in life than any of the things you think you need to know.
