Finances should be focused on in junior high and high school.
I agree completely. I'm very new to economics and find it upsetting that I knew none of this information until college (and this is just from one semester of macro). It doesn't have to be an in depth requirement for High Schoolers, but certainly enough to give them a sound breadth of the different models.

Those were some excellent points, Lucas. I know there will always be someone trying to make a quick buck on the ignorant, but hopefully a broadening of base financial/economic knowledge will help minimize the impact they have on the whole. It's truly upsetting that lenders can get away with what they do, but without either regulation or education it'll continue to run rampant in our society.
