Forcing people to know some basic stuff that actually affects them directly opens their mind to ask more advanced questions about the world around them and things that might have an indirect effect on them. Like climate change and over exploatation of non renewable resources.
I get that is not comfortable, but a too comfortable world breeds laziness and inflexibility.
