And don't MS provide computers for schools and colleges in the USA?
some observations from my time in school
P.E (physical Education) or if your good at Football you get to play Football, if not tough buns.
Home Economics (didn't do it myself but from what I was told it was how to boil an egg)
History, a brief look at a few historical events and then how to partition a field based on the land reforms in the 15th century. (ok a bit unfair as its a HUGE subject however when I left school I found it to be a fascinating subject and much of what I was taught was biased)
RE (religious Indoctrination) covered elsewhere
Geography (or how to read a *frootcagio* map, for 3 *frootcagio* years, a few field trips and discussions on Geology or plate tectonics wouldn't have gone amiss and made it MUCH more interesting)
English (or how to parse a phrase)
Pretty much the only O-levels I bothered to work for were maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. oh and I did way more mathematics in Physics than in Maths lessons partly because the maths teacher was in the middle of a nervous breakdown.
