My son and his friend have undertaken a grade 8 project to help educate students about the dangers of debt. One of their goals is to garner public support for adding the study of debt bubbles and credit education to high school curriculum. Since “every generation’s memory tends to be as long as its own experience”, I can’t think of a better topic to teach young people–the earlier the better.
Part of the assignment is for them to garner evidence of public support for the idea. If you would like to assist, they have set up an on line petition here.
