Why do schools teach more about history and geography than finance?
In high school, we had mandatory history classes but no personal finance lessons.
Today, I hardly use my history or geography knowledge gained in school. Thanks to wikipedia, google maps, and other information sources, I don’t see the point in learning this knowledge.
Instead, I could have used lessons in:
* Building a Credit Score
* How to Calculate Payments
* What a Tax Credit was
What are some other finance topics you wish you had known?
