Put personal finance as a high school requirement
Great idea, even a crash course would suffice. To me, the scariest thought is that kids in high school (and they are kids!) are confronted with the choice of college and which loan they will choose to get through it. I know a lot of people that didn't have their parents help them on that, and they almost immediately signed themselves into bankruptcy. I went to a good high school, and I remember my college guidance counselor showing me options in colleges - as well as corresponding loans as if the loans were a free bonus.
