Why Do We Torture All High School Students with Maths That Many Will Never Use?

Education administrators and governments seem to be totally detached from any understanding of the real world when it comes to designing curriculum. Nor do they seem to care how making students study something they are ill suited and unmotivated for will destroy self-confidence and create negative internal dialogue. It also wastes time that could be more productively spent. 

In this article I examine how we have ended up where we are, why it is a disaster and what can be done to fix it.
