    Knowing how to do algebra, "word problems", gives the power to understand what's happening, and what to do. I use algebra all the time whenever I'm solving a problem by myself, or in just understanding anything happening in large numbers.

    Ignoring that fundamental education will help make America a nation of even more helpless, powerless people. At the mercy of a world of predators and hard problems.
