Some people think that because some children find some subjects such as mathematics and philosophy difficult they ought to be optional instead of compulsory. To what extent do you agree?

Subjects
such
as mathematics and philosophy are found to be difficult to
study
by children. It is thought by some that these subjects must be made optional
instead
of mandatory. I agree that
such
subjects must be made optional as it helps both children and teachers.
Firstly
, children can avoid subjects
such
as mathematics and philosophy which are complex and laborious to
study
. Children, who is forced to
study
these subjects, find difficulty in comprehending the nuances of the subject. They may end up spending too much time understanding and decrease their overall efficiency to
study
other subjects.
This
results in bad grades and can lead to loss of self-confidence and build anxiety.
Additionally
, children will have the freedom to
study
their favourite subjects.
In other words
, children can concentrate on subjects they enjoy and do not
study
other optional subjects.
This
gives children an early start to pursue the subject of their choice,
therefore
laying a road map for higher studies and their future.
Besides
, children enjoy the subjects they understand.
This
will encourage them to
study
. Difficult subjects need special attention from teachers.
This
might burden already overworked teachers.
For example
, a mathematics teacher might have to take extra tuition for children weak in mathematics, leading to exhaustion.
This
can cause overall degradation in teaching performance and can cost children their quality education.
Moreover
, schools might need to hire more teachers to overcome teacher exhaustion, burdening the school funds. In conclusion, schools should get rid of compulsory subjects and make them optional,
therefore
benefiting children and teachers. By making them optional, we are encouraging children to
study
and reducing the burden on the schools and teachers.
