I thinks these are two things to teach:
- Finance - Simple ways to manage money. I read an article that said that Chinese, Estonian and Australian student are far ahead of American students in terms of managing money. Few schools will teach this and of those that do few will do it well (I’m assuming) so why not take things into our own hands? This could lead them to be millionaires one day or have a comfortable retirement.
2)“Science” (includes Mathematics) and Logic (Philosophy) - Things like the scientific method, math logic, technology. I think these are really important and could make it very easy for them to become successful. Not to complex though. Just simple stuff step by step. And most importantly to question everything. Not by being rude to someone but being skeptical when making a decision. Thinking logically about something and what is happening here? what are the consequences? What will I stand to gain or lose?
IMHO These are extremely important for all kids to learn. But maybe I’ve left something out or you don’t agree with me. What do you think is important?
