  • Hands-down FINANCING101. Too many people enter the world after leaving mom and dad's nest clueless about credit, stock market, insurance, 401K, IRA, mutual funds, loans, bankruptcy, the list goes on and on!!! Not knowing about things like that can seriously mess you up for years!!!!

  • Tolerance. A course that teaches about different cultures, races, religions, sexuality, etc., and just gives straight up facts about everything.

    Financing is a runner up for me, though.

  • I completely agree with Sweetloveofmine!!! My sweetheart is CLUELESS about money! We were recently car shopping and he actually considered signing a loan for 23%! I had to explain to him about interest rates and how on a $20,000 loan we would never pay it back at what I had budgeted in for a car payment. He was very happy to buy a lesser car outright after that. But geez!

    Or...bring back Home Ec!

  • Respect 101. Teaching Politeness, Respect for others & themselves, Empathy, Manners, Confidence, Etiquette etc. Because some Parents today are not teaching these things at home because they are too wrapped up in themselves.

  • A class on how to treat the opposite sex with respect,and how to stand up for yourself when a relationship goes sour. I've seen WAY too many women stay with men who are so messed up because they "love them" and hold the belief that he will change.
