382: Dismal State Of High School Financial Education
Play • 41 min
A high school teacher reveals the sad state of financial education today.  Most students still think the path is: go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a job, work until you’re 65, and then start enjoying life. 

Dan Sheeks is a Denver, Colorado-based high school teacher and real estate investor. 

He enjoys working with teenagers. He also volunteers for the Colorado Attorney General to advance financial education.  

Just last month, Dan released a book with Bigger Pockets: “First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence”. See it here.

He discusses solutions for teenage financial independence: 

1) When you turn 18, get your first credit card 

2) “House hack” real estate by age 21

3) Good debt vs. bad debt - do teens understand?

4) Mindset

5) Avoiding mistakes like “meme coins”

6) Saving

Dan tells us the two main reasons why there’s a pathetic lack of financial education in school today - funding and politics.
