My high school prepared the majority us for an immediate work life after graduation. That meant teaching us life skills that would help us survive and thrive. And yes, that meant understanding how to manage everyday money. We learned how to budget in “Home Economics”.
I went to an all-girl Catholic high school. I learned how to take shorthand and how to type – really fast. I was being prepared to work after high school graduation. My high school focused on teaching me technical skills that would allow me to be employed when I graduated.
