  1. Thanks for everyone's replies and I appreciate it. I appreciate impressing on me the importance and value of mathematics. My question is about why primary and secondary school combined is 12 years, the purpose of school, and why the minimum school leaving age around the world is generally 14-18 years old and why the minimum school leaving age varies around the world; although I recognise these questions may be hard to answer. By the way, I do not live in America.
  2. Thank you for suggesting how mathematics may be useful in understanding God's word and worshipping God. May I know how maths in involved in Psalm 119? What do you mean by "till the grass is on the other side"? Do you mean when the Lord Jesus Christ comes back to judge the earth?
  3. Thank you for your post. By more advanced mathematics I meant things like xy+2xy, I did not mean things like basic multiplication, fractions et cetera, but I was just giving an example of what I consider to be more advanced education. I appreciate you pointing out that mathematics of relevant to much of every day life and many parts of life. Personally, I believe education including in areas such as language and maths is also about worshiping God and understanding information God has placed on the earth, although I believe that the Bible is the ultimate authority.
  4. OK, thanks for this information. I thought school might also have been invented to teach children and youth how to write, read, do arithmetic, history, geography et cetera; and also so that children do not need to work full-time. However, I do wonder why school is often 12 years instead of less or more years, and why the minimum school leaving age varies between different places.
  5. I am not asking only about American schools, but school around the world in general.
  6. Why was school created and why is primary and secondary school combined usually 12 years in total? Why is the minimum school leaving age around the world mostly 13/14-18 (instead of earlier or later; it is 15 where I live) and why does it vary between countries and states?
  7. I believe anyone who seeks God with all their heart and believes in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ can be saved. Jeremiah 29:13: You will seek Me (God) and find Me (God) when you search for Me (God) with all your heart. John 3:16-18 : 16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
  8. Yes, I believe that all things are possible for God, and the things that are impossible with men are possible with God (Matthew 19:27). I believe with men it is impossible to be saved, but with God through His grace and mercy by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ all who come to Him and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ can be saved (John 1:12).
  9. Thank you. Some careers I do have in mind are jobs such as certified nursing assistant, care worker, or careers in the area of rehabilitation services (e.g. physical therapy aide or assistant). My intention is definitely to work with people.
  10. Other options other than a Bachelor's degree include possibly an associate's degree, or some form of post-secondary vocational training (e.g. certified nursing assistant or care worker training) and/or full-time employment. Possibly a "gap year" where the decision of whether to go to college (and major of study or career path) can be made later.
  11. Thank you. It seems most colleges that are not community colleges require at least a B average, but a few may accept a C average though an applicant with lower grades may need a higher SAT score. Many community colleges seem to accept anyone who has graduated high school. I am looking at colleges that have a minimum requirement of not higher than a B or C average. The reason I am looking at college is because there are some jobs that require a college degree, and less importantly, in college you have the opportunity of living in another city or country away from your parents and meet new people. I am not looking at a math, science or philosophy major but more at majors that relate to the area of human or social services. Technically in some places like Canada I think the term "college" may also refer to more vocational fields of study, but I am referring to "college" more in the traditional academic sense. One thing that I have noticed is some state universities with high acceptance rates seem to have at have less than a 50% graduation rate. It also seems that you would be put on academic probation or academically disqualified for GPAs that the university considers to be too low (some do not academically disqualify freshman students during their 1st and 2nd quarter), making it seem potentially more stressful than high school (just something to be aware of).
  12. Thanks. I apologise but at the moment I do not feel comfortable answering your question about why I created this thread.
