The following things are useful to learn in school, and are the reason why school exists:

English class: In this class, you should learn how to write lovely, gramatically correct English, good enough to give speeches or write novels, so that you'll never say something like the following: "yes but your mam and Dad would tech you to read and right". If taught correctly, this class is invaluable.
Math class: In this class, you should learn various types of mathematical problems and the steps you should take to solve them. People usually rat on math class the most, but math is really useful for solving complicated problems.
Science class: In this class, you should learn about unanswered questions you had as a child, like "Why is the sky blue?" or "Why don't the bridges fall down?" This class could be fun if it were taught properly.
History class: In this class, you should learn important events in world history that are relevant to what's going on in the world right now. Hopefully, understanding different cultures and world news is an end in itself.
Language class: In this class, you should learn a language that is interesting to you, and how to talk with people and read writing in that language. Everyone should be able to speak at least two languages fluently.

The following things are actually taught in school for some dumb reason:

English class: In this class, especially if the teacher is bad, you learn how to overanalyze boring poetry and totally destroy the entertainment you might gain from reading great works of literature by having to take tests and quizzes about minor details.
Math class: In this class, you learn how to do obscure problems that nobody cares about except for a few professional mathematicians.
Science class: In this class, you learn to parrot vague, useless statements that are often very hard to connect to reality. What does any of this mean?!
History class: In this class, you memorize unimportant names and dates. (Luckily, improvements have been made here, but in public school history is still memorization AFAIK.)
Language class: In this class, none of the languages you want to learn are available, so you end up taking Latin, which nobody speaks any more, has no works left untranslated, and is extremely difficult and annoying.
