Why is English a compulsory subject in VCE?


Maths isn't compulsory in VCE, yet in this modern world it's arguably as important.

I honestly don't believe that you can go through years P-10 and still be illiterate, So how is that that even though by year 11 you are still required to do English? You can read, you can write, you can understand basic (and some advanced) techniques (i.e. persuasive devices). So why do you still have to do it?


The fact that we have to do this subject is archaic and above all, an unnecessary use of time that could be better spent teaching students a subject that will be more important to them in their future.
