My experience anyway. the number of people who do not get higher education and/or drop out of school because of deficiency in math is a topic worth considering. If the focus were more on personal finance as opposed to solve for X I think a lot of folks might be better off. In full disclosure I must confess I come from a time when someone could graduate from college without ever passing a math test at the collegiate level by supplanting with philosophy.
Yup. And all this teaching of higher math comes at the expense of numeracy, which is the MOST important of the Maths.
