I think it will be a great idea if there was such a subject at school called: Financial planning. It would cover such topics as budgeting, saving for retirement, investing, ect. High school is a perfect age frame for this subject. Since many parents skip the step of explaining their kids how important those things are, many end up having some ridiculous debts. Despite being young, we need to take care about our happy retirement (without having a need of turning to personal loans for bad credit on-line) now. You cover some very important thing in your articles.
