I totally agree with this! It is so baffling that we are taught biology and physics in high school yet we are not taught "life" skills at all. I was fortunate to goto some very good schools and yet I was completely unprepared to file my own taxes, manage bank accounts, negociate a car and now a I graduate I am in a bit of a panic because I have to figure out how to approach a loan officer, manage stocks and worry about a retirement plan. Non of which was taught or even mentioned in any class.
Maybe it's supposed to be the job of parents to teach these sorts of things?
