Real personal finance and investing should be taught. It is ridiculous that people graduate without a rudimentary understanding of retirement needs, the power of years of compounding in early investment, foolish purchases, priorities in budgeting, etc.

Common civil courtesy. Unfortunately, some people aren’t learning at home. If you are guilty? Shame on you parents for indulging rude children who turn into rude adults.

How to do your taxes...how to pay bills...how to manage your income...what it takes to achieve certain careers...you know, day-to-day practical adult things that are essential to living in society.

Ethics — personal, governmental, and business. Maybe some of it would sink in and we could evolve.
