Why dont they teach you about finances in high school?

Like managing your money and tips on saving. I mean some of them history lessons weren’t even necessary really. Someone please explain to me why Cleopatra being pharoah in Ancient Egypt at ~100BC is more important than me being broke in 2012 (im not broke anymore)?

They wouldn’t even have to teach that throughout your entire high school career, just the last year. I mean, i was one of those seniors that only needed like 3 classes a marking period to graduate with the right amount of credits. Why couldn’t they make Managing Finances a required senior course, or make it available if students wanted it?

Sometimes i think the people in charge don’t even know what’s important to know and they just throw a bunch of bullshit at us to distract from what’s real.
