See, that would make sense if the Pythagorean theorem wasn't easy as **** and didn't take 15 minutes to learn. What this shirt says to me is "I'm a lazy twat, but I'd rather blame it on the school system.".   
   
Now, if it were something actually complicated, it'd be understandable.

If the did teach you those things, would you go to that class? Doing taxes is very difficult and tedious even if you do understand it. This is why people pay a lot of money to accountants or taxation experts to do their taxes for them.

Most definitely, I took several finance classes and accounting classes in school. None of which taught me how to actually pay taxes or anything about taxes.

Step 1: Ask your legal guardian about these things.
Step 2: If step 1 fails, go online and google it.
Step 3: Go to school and learn the ******* Pythagorean Theorem so you're not a total dunce once you get in to college level math.

Taxes, banking, voting and buying houses are all pretty simple if you have a basic grasp of politics and maths (not sure how much Americans do about politics in school, but we do plenty over here).
The purpose of school is to teach you what often cannot be taught by the average person. When I moved out, if I got confused about taxes I could give a family member a quick call, or research it online, or even phone the masses of official government assistance on how to fill out certain forms. If I phoned home and asked how to solve a complex maths problem I'd be screwed, because my parents don't know **** about that and there's much less completely free help available that is as effective as being taught by a teacher.
Also - and once again, this might just be an English thing - everybody in my school was completely set up on how to start renting accomodation, take out loans and manage our money. They gave us written guides and everything.

To answer your question about Americans political knowledge. We gave Obama a second term. We're ******* retarded

To be fair it was either Obama or the ********* Mitt Romney.

That guy just had the look of
"I'm going to **** everyone over, and turn mess this country up more than fix it."

But that's my opinion, everyone is entitled to their own.

Math gives you a basic idea on how to 3 of those 5 things.
Voting is braindead simple as it is.
History tells you what taxes are and multiple examples of how it went wrong.
Science gave you a basic understanding of how the world works so you didn't look like a total clod when talking to a realtor or car salesman, only somewhat of one because you're wearing this shirt.

And also? There's a class called Consumer math. This shirt bothers me so much.

Then they launch you into college (or the workplace depending on what you want), and expect us to know how to handle everything on our own. As someone who plans on getting their own house soon, I have no idea how to pay taxes, I vaguely know how to vote, I do however understand credit and debit and checking to a degree. (I'm 18 btw)

Just because you're too stupid to have to use the Pythagorean theorem doesn't mean it's not relevant to others, so shut the **** up.
