(Sounds like the story of my life!  Although, what passes for education these days is kind of scary.  The government keeps pushing for more and more math and science, and completely ignoring the arts and humanities.  The math and sciences are well-suited to the more technical jobs, but the arts and humanities teach you how to think critically.  I can only deduce that the government desires a population incapable of critical thought.  They don’t want us – or not too many of us at least – questioning their policies and actions.  Question authority, people.  It’s the only way to hold them accountable.  This is supposed to be a “government of the people, for the people, by the people”.  We can’t let them take this from us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
