#2, Money Management is a big one. I'm pretty sure if people that walked out of high school had a basic understanding of credit card pitfalls, debt, college loans, interest rates and so on, there wouldn't be so many bankruptcies happening right now.

Kids should come to school at a minimum with those 2 before their first day in kindergarten. It is not the responsibility of the school to potty train kids, but they do.
At a point where students are graded more on passing a single test instead of accumulated knowledge I don't think we should even focus on non traditional subjects. At this point just having the kids be able to read, write, and perform enough arithmetic to survive simple financial transactions would be good enough for me.
