"I can't believe they don't teach the kids this stuff!" That was the exclamation of an irate father, appalled when learning it was not the public school system's responsibility to educate our sprogs in the mysterious ways of money management at a recent financial aid night.
The cold, hard truth is that it is not the school's responsibility. Personal finances are personal for a reason. Instructing our kids in that arena falls to us. I recognized this early on, and started instructing my own children in the ways of finance awhile back.
