Any subject in general could be extremely fun to learn if the educational pace was more easy going. THAT is the problem.
We are a generally long-lived species these days. Why in the hell do we need to compress several times the knowledge of 60 years ago into the same time span they had 60 years ago? It makes no sense to me. High school teenagers in AP (advanced placement) classes are competing so hard that they need to be up until 1am or 2am in the morning three or four times a week just to keep up with the homework. 4 to 5 hours of sleep per night. Terrible sleeping and eating habits. No physical activity. It has gotten RIDICULOUS. I don't know what in the hell we think we're teaching kids these days, but we're sure not teaching them that learning is fun.
There has to be a breaking point soon. Kids should be able to enjoy being kids. Kids should also feel like they don't have to pressured to have half of their college credits finished by the time they graduate high school. They also shouldn't feel like they should need to get their PhD by the time they are 21.
What are we doing to these kids?
