we need to have classes in school about money. debt to income ratio. how to apply for loans. how to set up a 401k.
why do we not have classes about how to pay your bills or what to do if your stove catches on fire or if your toilet starts to flood or how to change a flat tire?
these are real life situations. everyone should have some understanding on how to handle them and it’s much more important than learning about imaginary numbers imo.
Not to be an asshole. But whenever I see this it drives me mental.
There was a class in highschool for every single one of those things. I realize not every school offers these classes, but they exist. You can take accounting, personal finance, electrical, auto, plumbing, food and nutrition or some kind of cooking class. Hell we even had a parenting class.
I think most high schools, in most cities offer at least a few of these. The options are there.
