This Education System

Location

You tell us to prepare for college 

And cram our brains with useless knowledge

That won't help us in our lives

Won't help us support our wives

 

Why am I learning about pre-calculus,

If i'm becoming a sports analyst?

Why am I learning chemistry,

If I want to be a deputy?

 

Our curriculum just doesnt make sense

It's just another public expense

Teach us more important life skills

That may one day help us pay the bills

 

The things I learn should be relevant to me

To bring out the best me I can be

So please help us change this system

So we can grow to be filled with wisdom
