    All roads lead to money. Everything taught is for the purpose of learning a skill to make enough money to live a comfortable life. Unfortunately, the schools tie up so much time that people get bored. If you cut to the chase and understand that it's all about making as much money as possible, it's easier to get started with good ideas or products to sell. The amount of money will determine how much freedom a person has to do whatever they want, whenever they want. Anything less is bondage or dependency on jobs or employers. These days it is not wise to be at the mercy of companies. Anything can happen to them. To depend on one's own ideas is security. A person can also make much more money. Hence the importance of math.

    Because almost any job a person gets later in life is going to involve math of some type. Whether it's as simple as counting out change at a store or as complicated as calculating the proper dose of a medication to give a patient, math is involved. Some people think it's no longer necessary because we have calculators and computers do so much of the math for us, but we can't always rely on those things - technology does break down once in a while. Math must be taught at the lower levels, although not all students need to learn things like statistics or advanced calculus.
