Just in case education

Think back of most of what you learned in high school. How much chemistry or biology you use in your life? We learn those things just in case if you become a medical student or biologist one day. Unfortunately most of the topics at schools are like that. However if you want to learn how to dynamically include a snippet of HTML in your page - you will learn something that sticks to your brain just in time.

Just in case learning is a huge waste in our education system. Can someone teach kids test driven and context-driven material so that they know why a topic can add value to their life?
