No. Stop trying to always change everything.

Stick to the basics. English, math, science, US history, world geography, PE, and the arts. Sex ed, maybe.

Critical race theory, crypto, or whatever is the latest hip trend, has no place in the classroom.

I agree. If you are going to talk about finance, discuss checking accounts, credit cards, student loans, mortgages, and maybe the stock and bond markets. I know many educated people who don't know the difference between a stock and a bond or what a mutual fund is.
