This might be slightly advantageous because I realized I didn't have all my W-2 forms, but still it's been a headache to deal with. Worthless classes like State History should be cut from high school and replaced with basic "Taxes/Credit Card/loans/finances" class.
/fashion related note, could've picked up some cool stuff with my return now I have to wait some more...
Actually, worthless classes like that should be replaced with classes like world history, geography, "Introduction to logic" (most of the "logical thinking" I read here and on other forums is far from,) or introductory classes in physical chemistry, modern physics, modern biology - though I think that the number of teachers who could teach any of these classes competently are probably quite low.
Education is meant to expand the mind, not teach a bunch of bullshit skills. If you can't figure out, on your own, how to manage your personal finances and properly file your taxes, you are probably too dumb to breathe.
