I was just walking home from class and was thinking about the imbalance of what is taught in schools and colleges. I'll be graduating in May and I realized how focused the united states and other countries (I think) are towards math and science. However, when I look back at my college and high school life the courses that were of the most use and had the most impact were the few on psychology and philosophy. I know brainiacs who can solve complex math equations or program a linux component. Yet they have no idea about why someone acts a certain way, why they feel something or how they should live their life. Obviously I don't want to stereotype, because there are alot of well balanced people. However there is such a drive in the states and other countries to force math and science at the expense what I consider just as important subjects like psychology and philosophy. I would think that if you go into a rough neighborhood school and start teaching psychology and philosophy that it will end up changing people and their view on life. Equations and physics doesn't help kids on crack or with messed up parents, because it doesn't relate to them. I don't think their will ever really be balance because science and math make money and money is business and business is becoming life. Just my thoughts.
