Many high schools across the USA have decided to remove direct and indirect geometric proofs from their math curriculum. Why do you suppose this is the case? I think schools are spending too much time test preparing their students and thus reducing the value of true learning and education.

For example, if students are given two angles in triangle ABC and told to find the missing side, no problem. However, most students cannot prove two triangles are congruent much less start to write a geometric proof when triangles overlap. I think it is a crime to reduce what makes geometry the special topic that it is and will continue to be. What do you say?
