I have a lot of interests; personal finance being one of them. This is one of those subjects that should be taught in school. It’s so huge that I incorporate it into my economics class ever since my first year. Let’s face it. Most students are more likely to use personal finance skills straight out of the classroom than wonder about how the supply & demand of eggs are affecting its prices. I wasn’t taught it in school and “life skills” ALWAYS come up whenever you ask students what they want to learn.
