Algebra and Adolescents

I am prone to think about things in the light of events in my own life (as we probably all are) but I also try to listen to other people as well as the voice of almighty God for guidance.
One question that has become a 'good' question for me (as in '...that's a good question!') is this: In this country, why do we force an abstract study like ALGEBRA on people with big clumsy adult bodies but who are going through THE most trying time of life sorting out issues like peer influence, the opposite sex, career decisions, after school activities, etc?

You should have to be like 30 at least to try Algebra.

There should be a test you have to pass to vote, also.

For that matter, there should be a test you have to pass to procreate.
