High school seniors Jasmine Arreaga and Melanie Zelaya think students should learn about taxes, and that high school economics courses shouldn’t be optional.  The knowledge we need to file taxes and manage our money — and to not get saddled with exorbitant debt — is not considered in high school curriculum.  “These are the kind of skills that no one teaches us at school, but are essential to surviving in the real world as an adult.”  Read the commentaries in a series titled “Leaders in social change” on the Youth Media Blog of Media Arts San Diego.
