My sons' high school is revamping their Financial Management class, and are looking to update their curriculum. I gave them one link with a bunch of spread sheets and calculators, tools to look at and analyze their options being it rent or buy and many other real estate based calculators and spreadsheet: http://www.mortgage-investments.com/resources/

Do you have any favorite websites they could use for content? Once upon a time I would have referred them to TMF, but it's become one big ad.

Wow. I'm stunned that a high school has a financial management class.

It's a pretty cool class. They examine how the interest on a credit card can affect the overall price of things, investing in the stock market, real estate, IRAs, etc., as well as the more basic budgeting and keeping a check book. It's a half-year elective and Eldest will be taking marketing the second half. His teacher has an undergraduate degree in marketing with a masters in education, so it should be pretty good.

From time to time there are issues with our school district, in particular the middle school, but all in all it's pretty fabulous.

IP,
having no problem paying our relatively high taxes given the quality of the school district
