      I agree, Shawn… I sure wish I’d had classes in those subjects

      because I’ve struggled all my life (I’m 51 now) and still largely

      unknowledgeable about financial options beyond the very basics.

      My two sons are in their 20’s and did not have any classes about

      these things, either… I think one managed to teach himself pretty

      well, anyway, but my younger son is pretty helpless. I feel guilty

      and not sure how to help him!

      I think these types of topics would be FAR more useful and truly

      beneficial to our society than some of the subjects taught in schools

      that have nothing to do with “real life” and are forgotten as soon as

      the tests are over with!

      all americans over the long term.
