I agree. i think financial education should be taught in high school. I was amazed when in college how many didn't know how to keep a checkbook (back then there were not as many debit cards etc.). kids would write checks and not put it in the ledger. then get bounced check fees and be shocked.
a budget? wtf is that?
we are trying to teach our kids how to do it. we give them allowance and subtract things they want (teakwondo for my son and gymnastics for daughter) out of it. so they get the idea of a budget. it seems to be working.
I have been out in the workforce from college for the last 6 months.
I already have $3,000 saved in accounts along with paying my debt off at a rate quicker than normal, and bills and "fun" stuff and friends/girls.
So... why are other people having issues?
