In MA, the state tells us what the curriculum is with very little room left for electives of any sort

My school taught trigonometry. Can you honestly tell me that trigonometry is more useful/important than finances?!? FWIW, my engineering education covered time value of money in no less than FIVE courses.

I think it should be taught as part of the math curriculum, the basics could be covered in just a couple weeks IMHO.
