It wasn't my intention to suggest that parents shouldn't teach their kids, but the fact remains that probably 99% of parents don't teach their kids. As a result, I think kids would benefit from having schools teach some of the basics. After all, schools teach so much crap it wouldn't hurt to actually teach something useful.My parents didn't teach me about finances. My school did help me with finances. It was called a math class. I still have trouble with people who say the lack of financial education is the reason for a large revolving credit card bill. It doesn't take a genius to understand you owe interest if you don't pay your bill in full and you pay increasing amounts of it as your balance increases.IF
