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?

I suspect that what we taught our kids might not be the agreed upon curriculum for the school course. I am also of the opinion that kids learn best by example and I want us to be their example.

My kids, my choice. There are also other courses I'd rather them take at school than this.

Personally I learned it by reading books.

This isn't a popular view, I'm sure but it's mine as a parent and a taxpayer.

P.S. Did I mention my 23 year old daughter bought a house last year ?
