Yeah. When we started learning English in fifth grade we were taught IPA symbols alsongside, which were also in the word lists, so we could read and learn the pronunciation along with the spelling. It guess its not worse than having to memorize gender or plurals in other languages, but it seems so unnecessary to have an alphabet but not use it as one. (And of course I understand that there are historical reasons, and imported words and so on, but other languages manage to adjust the spelling of these much better after a while.)
