Episode 151: Personal Finance for the Real World with Jake CousineauWhen I was growing up, the boys took shop, and the girls took home ec. The latter, as we would say today, stressed gender roles, and consisted of cooking, sewing, and the like. But real home economics should deal with household finances, budgeting, credit, and the like. It should help to prepare high school students for the real world.

That’s why in this episode of the podcast, I wanted to talk about how that should change and has been changing in some schools around the country. To that end, I invited teacher and author Jake Cousineau onto the show to discuss how he is accomplishing just that!

In this episode, you will learn:

  • About how personal finance is taught in a high school in California
  • About the importance of learning personal finance at an early age
  • Why high schools should teach personal finance to seniors
