There should be a law against rugby boots that are not black. The advent of coloured boots is what precipitated the current decline in civilisation as we know it.

Kids are always asking what the point of school is. They don't seem very aware that its important for their own lives. I don't have a problem telling them what reality is like for life when they become adults.

This generation are going to have it tough.

To be fair, if you hadn't worked in your field, would you know as much as you do?

Also, final salary pension schemes = Long gone

It's a reasonable question but I don't think its my job that has made me interested tbh. Most of the guys I work with have zero pension provision and the company I've been with for the last 6 years has no pension scheme whatsoever. Think it has probably more to do with the fact my dad took early retirement due to ill health and I always quite fancied the same (the retirement not the ill health) therefore took steps looking into it. I think it's mind blowingly crazy that people in their 30s/40s have absolutely no idea about pensions and just kind of expect an income when they reach old age. It should be compulsory in schools along with other basic financial concepts like mortgages/ credit cards/ time value of money/ interest.

Maybe they prefer to employ an expert and spread the wealth rather than grasping their money to their cold, wrinkled bosom as the ghosts of former business partners warn them of their parsimonious ways.

Everybody agrees about this, but the reality is that most schoolteachers (certainly in England, and I suspect most of the rest of the world as well) simply don't feel confident enough in their own fiscal knowledge to be willing or able to teach it to others. There's a bootstrap problem
