A lot of those can be learned from...guess who? Your parents!

Sorry, Batman.

Unless you take a financial literacy class, that takes care of seven of those bullet points.

How in the **** do you not know what taxes are, how to vote, what political parties are, how to write anything related to getting a job, math and how to balance a checkbook, or statistics and how to calculate loans for college?

This makes no sense, did you go to a school for ******* retarded children?

They also teach you nearly 0% of the things you mentioned in Canada.

Wrong, your school just sucks.

I've learned most of that in school...
User avatar #22 - oldaccountdeleted (05/30/2013) [+] (1 reply)
I literally learned all of these things in school

People say school didn't teach them real life stuff because they never gave two ***** about school. If you wanted to learn stuff like that, you will, you just have to take the god damn class, and stop taking easy **** . I've been to 3 different high schools. All of them taught general business, personal finance, accounting, government, and college prep classes. People bitch because it's not handed to them. You have to work to get ahead in life.

Your school is supposed to give you technical knowledge required for potential future jobs.   
Your family is supposed to teach you how to live your life and take care of yourself.   
   
Besides, if you don't pick this stuff up during your average high school career, then you're doing it wrong.

i learned all those in basic us government/economics classes, which were mandatory for every student.
(except the jump start thing)
but if you don't know how to do any of those things
and you don't know how to google the answers in under a minute
after 18 years growing up in modern society
you don't deserve to vote/get a car/house/get into college
User avatar #119 - blarghagh (05/30/2013) [-]
okay, how hard is it to jump start a car?

My school taught me all that freshmen year. And they say education in America sucks.
#109 - anonymous (05/30/2013) [+] (1 reply)
That's probably because your ******* parents should help you and teach you most of these things.
#108 - anonymous (05/30/2013) [-]
A lot of those things come with instructions on how to do them...

I go to a sixth form in London, which is joint to my secondary school.
Not sure what this is in american terms, but I've just left after spending seven years there from the age of 11-18.

I don't know how the tax system works in america, but the one in england has a range of websites and leaflets and even phone-in helpdesks for filling out forms etc.
I didn't take a politics A-level, but all 50 or so people that did could tell you almost everything about most mainstream political parties.
Up until this year, we've spent a lesson per week on PSHE, which is basically "citizenship". We've learnt about sex, drugs and unfortunately rock and roll. We have, however learnt about filling out CVs (resumes) and applying for jobs. The only reason we stopped doing it this year was so that we could fill out our Uni (college) applications and student finance forms. We even had to spend a term in year 11 learning how to cook/iron clothes/sew/wash dishes etc.

Now, I'm not sure if it's my schools comprehensive curriculum, but I have to say I feel thoroughly prepared for all of the things listed up there. School does not suck.

(Ps. I don't know what balancing a cheque book is, since nobody writes cheques here. Ever.)

Yeah, kinda similar, I go sixth form and know most of this. However, I was going to apply for College, and it was mandatory to do maths, English, and two other subjects (hour a week) one was how to write c.v.'s, pay bills, tax's etc, and another to do with your rights and citizenship. I've lived solo since I was 16/17, so I kinda had to learn.

Wait, how are you in high school and not know what taxes are? Have you ever seen two people jump start a car before? You've never taken the time to ask your parents or any adult you know how they balanced their accounts? Have you ever watched the news?

Resume I understand but their should be a class in college or high school you can take to teach you. Banking is another finance class unless it's basic banking (writing checks, how to open a saving account, etc.) college loans is something you should've asked your college counselor or your gunna owe an assload of money by the end of your four years.

You can learn things through your own initiative you know. even though most schools I've seen do teach most if not all of this.
