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!

children’s future. I wonder why personal finance and budgeting isn’t
taught in high school. This would be of great benefit to them and
all americans over the long term.
