    no more emphasis on teaching subjects we can't use

    "Your [1976] teachers were expected to teach students how to memorize facts and detail instead of how to think creatively. Much time was spent on subjects which were of little use to the average person, such as foreign languages, algebra, and higher mathematics, while most learning programs gave little or no attention to the most important subject of all--human behavior and life philosophy. I group these two together because man's behavior is always the result of his beliefs, that is, his philosophy of life."
