HtDP doesn't discuss continuations.  It's difficult to answer the
"why" question precisely (it doesn't cover the hatching of sea
turtles, either), but perhaps it would help to point out that HtDP
does not intend to be a book about Scheme.

If you want to learn more about continuations, may I recommend:

  Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum Days

by Dorai Sitaram and

  Programming Languages: Application and Interpretation

by me.
