the school system graduates kids with little or no basic life skills such as knowing how to balance a checkbook, prepare a budget, or how to properly interview for a job. Not all graduates go to college. Most enter the workforce with no clue how to manage their money.


our high schools are graduating students who have no clue how to budget, balance a checkbook, or properly apply for a job. Not all graduates go to college...many join the workforce. How refreshing it would be to see our schools educate them all on some of life's basic skills.
