As a parent, I don't want the schools doing financial education or else make it an elective. My 3 kids were taught Bout finances at home and at 17,21 and 23, they have started to save for retirement.

I'm not sure I follow your logic, you thought financial education was valuable enough to teach at home, yet not important enough for the school curriculum?

Personally, I've thought financial education (time value of money, effects of CC interest, basics of mortgages, etc.) is more valuable than trigonometry (how many truly use sine & cosine anyway). My daughter will definitely learn about this stuff before she leaves my care.
