While I completely agree that there needs to be more emphasis placed on the principles of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution, you are seriously off base on math. Beyond the simplest forms of math, a calculator is useless if the person using it doesn't understand advanced math. There's a good reason math is called the language of science and engineering. A failure to teach advanced math will translate into an inability to teach science and engineering.
Just like a knowledge of history is necessary to understand the present, an understanding of math is necessary to create the future.
