I've always been irritated by the school's irresponsibility regarding finances.
I have been irritated, too. But let's say you were able to convince the local school board to have a seminar in money management and investing. You'd say "I'd be happy to come in and teach the kids about investing." But someone on the board would say, "You don't have any credentials," and they would bring in a certified financial planner, who would teach them that the kids need to pay someone 1.5% to buy load funds for them.
