As an update, I researched a bit the school district I went to high school at. I found the education board website, and also managed to find out who the current chair of the curriculum board, who also happened to be the assistant superintendant of education.In either case, with those fancy titles, I thought they were worthy of an e-mail, I so I briefly explained my purpose for writing, the lack of education that graduates from their schools have (and I would know, since I am a graduate), and a proposal for a class that could teach basic money management along with investing basics.The person actually wrote back and we exchanged a few emails. They said that they already had a consumer education class, but that more information may be valuable. I said that I remembered the consumer education class, but that it was geared towards consumers. It seemed to teach how to balance a checkbook, write checks, calculate taxes, but nothing about saving money and not being a consumer.It ended up that he said their next curriculum meeting is coming up very soon, so he will be printing out my e-mail and will present it to the other board members.If nothing else, at least I tried :)
