Finance for Kids

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?
