Why is financial management not taught in school?

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?

Week Four Challenge: Pick up the phone and call someone

It seems like the days are gone of us actually connecting with real people. When we are with anyone are we really there with them, or are we wondering what other people are doing. Somehow the ability to connect with more people has some kind of way disconnected us. So many of us feel alone,lonely, depressed, because we are not talking to each other. And no a text is not the same thing. One would argue a text from killer with your phone has gotten a murderer a few more days freedom. Strange to say but yes, it happens.

There is something about the sound of a person’s voice that can make you feel things, a person’s voice can make you laugh,cry,forgive, remember,smile, relax,you get the point. I’ve always liked this poem

No the entire poem is not on here yet you can feel his excitement just at the sound of her voice. Your voice does that to someone too. Be someone’s joy this week. call them. Don’t text. Call and hear their voice. Let their voice wash over you. You will definitely feel better.

Okay people let me know how this challenge went.
