The sad thing is that schools don't teach basic money management , family finance or even the difference between a stock, bond , CD or bank account. That kind of basic training is worth far more than the 12 years of political indoctrination they currently get in school.
If we had a country that was financially literate, this election wouldn't even be close.

Some young people have an aptitude for mathematics. Some don't. If a student is still struggling by 11th grade put them into a class that teaches them the math that will matter the most in their lives: How banks and stocks work, how to save and apply for a mortgage, how to minimize debt and how to accumulate wealth by routinely saving as soon as you get your first job.
