Teach the basics of personal financing, awareness and understanding of how the credit cards and of the financing systems work in our country. This is a fundamental part of our daily lives and it seems most have never been educated in this –including myself.
This small but vital class would need to be in public education on order to touch and educate the mass, not all go to college to learn financing. This type of mandatory class could create a smarter consumer and family planner(s)
This could also help on domestic issues as well -were financial issues is a large contributor to marital problems, violence, and or divorce.
