Saving daylight

Why do we continue to change our clocks? This Saturday night / Sunday morning we are being asked to put all of the clocks back by one hour to ‘save daylight’. Why? Children hate going to school, light or dark and even if they go to school in the morning daylight, they return in evening darkness. Farmers tend to work in almost any conditions, temporal or meteorological and have the use of something called electricity so why do we still do it? The map below shows where in the world does and does not adjust clocks. As you can see from the higher resolution version here, some individual states in the US and Provincial Canada do not observe it at all.
