Aging (Life) is Expensive, Should We Be Teaching Financial Literacy in School?

The subprime mortage meltdown has illustrated once again how ill prepared adults are to navigate an increasingly complex financial marketplace.  Life is expensive, and it gets really expensive when you think about living in a continuing care retirement community or having services delivered to your home.

Makes me wonder . . . should we be teaching financial literacy in schools?  Perhaps helping the next generation get grounded in the Three S’s (Saving, Spending, Sharing) in addition to the Three Rs.
