What class in high school did you slack off in, and now you WISH you hadn't? A new survey asked people to name the #1 subject they wish they'd paid more attention to. And MATH took the top spot.  Which is surprising to me.

Here are the top eight subjects we wish we'd tried a little harder at...

1. Math. 31% of people wish they'd paid more attention. 23% of men and 15% of women said it was the most useful class they took.

2. A foreign language, 26%. See, this one is my answer.  I wish I'd taken Spanish and done well at it, and kept it up, you know.

3. Science, 23%.

4. History, 19%.

5. English, 15%. I wish some people on social  media would choose this answer.  How many times have you seen someone misuse "your" and "you're"? I would be rich if I had a quarter for every cringeworthy grammar moment I've seen online.

6. Social studies, 14%.

7. Music, 9%.

8. Physical fitness, 8%. Older people were more likely to say history. And young people were more likely to say music or gym class.

Well, what do you think? Which class do you wish you'd paid attention in?

Scholarly yours,
