On bending knees

He ask for forgiveness with eyes and head bowed

Popped the question,its almost a whisper his heart pound so loud

Prayers to God, Eyes looking up to heaven

The battle is over,our fallen solider count, seven

On bending knees we show love, honor and grace

Trying to spread peace and balance to our chaotic place

Never make her cry

Hold her hand

wipe away her tears

but never make her cry

laugh with her

Chase away her fears

but never make her cry

Dance with her

And always be that guy

that makes her laugh,dance,

but never make her cry

Why is financial management not taught in school?

image found on pinterest

I know I write a lot of poetry, but I am more than just a one dimensional person. I do a lot of things, as I am sure many of you do. Therefore I dare to pause from writing poetry to ask the question above. I mean think about it. When you get out of high school or college you are expected to go out into the real world and just know about money and paying bills and establishing credit. Yet at no time were your ever given classes on real world money or life.

I know some of you are thinking we can learn money management at home. If that’s the case one would argue you can learn about drugs and sex at home. Yet we learn both at school. School teaches us about sex education (abstinence) and Say no to drugs. But not one ,not one class teaches us about trying to make a living off of minimum wage. We are told education is important. What we are not told is that, not everyone needs a college degree. We are not told that college is very expensive and you may not get a job as soon as you get out of college, and you still have to pay for that degree even if you never use it.

Okay I am going on a little more than I wanted to about college and tuition. That is another post later.

My question to you is : Do you think financial management should be required in high school?
