I was taught to wash my hands before cooking in my HomeEc class (and how to make cinnamon toast). That was tax payers' money well spent!!! I think my mom (& dad) reminded me at least several times a week about washing my hands since I was 2 years old. Why did I need a teacher for that?!! On the other hand, my 7th grade math teacher taught us how to read the stock market pages of the newspaper - my parents never taught me that, nor would they, since they did not know much about this.

I think having a basic finance and investment class required in high school is a great idea and is tax payers' money well spent.
