I don't see how anyone could oppose teaching basic finance to students as a way of preparing them for life.I'm certainly for it. I really wasn't all that well prepared for the real world when I left home. When I applied for my first salaried job, I was looking at moving to another city, and I had no clue at all what my expenses would be, or whether my salary would cover them. Mostly people manage it, but it seems like the first year or so could be made a lot easier with systematic education.I didn't get that job, but that's another story.Why folks can't have a civil discussion on the subject is beyond me.Old injuries, I think. The "I'm from that evil 'personal responsibility' camp" remark carried a truckload of old anger with it. So did Rich's response, of course, but I saw that as being a little more justified, given the circumstances. - Gus
