These are really things one should be picking up from their parents & family members. Like, I knew how to write checks when I was a young. But then again, I was pretty perceptive and inquisitive as a kid, and my parents encouraged that, so.
Not everyone is in that sort of situation, though. In fact, I wouldn't say that many of my friends at all have learned these sort of things from their parents. I definitely never did. So, even though it's something that parents are able to teach, it's not really something that they all teach so I think that schools should still have an involvement with this sorta thing.
