The subjects taught in school represent media for imparting knowledge to students. Through these subjects, students acquire knowledge in particular areas. However, the principal need of students is in reality not knowledge that is packaged in subjects that cover the bare minimum, and which are constantly changing.

Thus, knowledge is not the only thing that needs to be acquired by students through the subjects they study as much of the knowledge they learn is of no benefit to them. The knowledge imparted to them through the subjects taught at school must not be confined to the specifics of each subject, but rather must be expanded so as to show students how that knowledge can be put to practical or abstract use in a logical and ethical manner that is beneficial both to the nation and human civilization.
