Comment on the following statement:
|It's important for high school students to study compulsory subjects, even if they don't see any need for them in the near future.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some students think that subjects as mathematics, physics and others that are compulsory have to be studied only by those who are going to study them further in colleges whereas others say that they are a part of just an educated and cultured person.
In my opinion, one must study compulsory subjects since there are many subjects that help develop the analytical ability of students. Besides, studying subjects they must, they tend to develop an informational view of other facets of life, which might be helpful in the future. Many careers are not directly linked to these subjects, but studying them help and support a better understanding of the world. That’s why I don’t oppose studying them.
Some other people say it’s a dilemma for many students. As they get to study subjects they hardly ever use in their near future life. So it’s a big waste of time and energy that could be utilized properly.
Studying vocational subjects helps in acquiring useful knowledge that is suitable to near future and work. On the other hand, a student may spend a lot of time studying those subjects that may actually have no use for his future. Many people change their professions a few times until they find something they really like.
For the overall mental growth of a student, supportive subjects play an important role in a student’s life. Even if they don’t directly help him in his near future, they do help him develop a wider knowledge base. And yet, I wouldn’t recommend including too many such subjects to save more time for the main direction.
