      It should be taught and it should be a requirement for graduation that you know how to balance a checkbook, understand fees, interest rates and how they affect you, etc. You will be dealing with money for your entire adult life.

      If the school doesn’t teach this, then the parents should. Actually the parents should teach the kids from an early age.

      The public schools can only do so much, especially when you consider that half (or more) of class time is spent just trying to keep order.

      I was thinking about something that may be helpful to our children’s future. I wonder why personal finance and budgetingisn’t taught in high school. This would be of great benefit to them and all americans over the long term.
