Evaluating education systems in the usa

Some General Considerations
According to Peterson (2007), about one out of ten Americans does not have any High school education and only one out of seven has a University degree, whereas about 7% of the GDP goes to education. Also at the grade level, there are both private and public schools that should be taken as expanding the scope of basic knowledge given to the young children.
According to Peterson (2007, a society that seeks financial responsibility must involve the young people in the decision making that concerns their future. The future decisions are dependent on the way a young person will be able to comprehend the value of the decision being made for his/her welfare.
The age, at which the grades covers are receptive to new ideas, therefore the learning would not go to waste i. e. pre-school, nursery school, or head start, as well as junior high school (middle school), fits well in the same category. Kindergarten covers age 5-6, grade one covers age 6-7, grade two covers age 7-8, grade three covers age 8-9, grade four covers age 9-10, grade five covers age 10-11, and grade six covers age 11-12. Junior high school and high school are in many places merged into one consisting of a high school with grades 8-12.
The senior public which consists of grades 7 and 8, with ages 12-13, grade eight (freshman year) ages 13-14, grade nine (sophomore year) covers age 14-15. Joining high school, we find the tenth grade (Intermediate year) covering ages 15-16, grade eleven (junior year) covering ages 16-17 and grade twelve (senior year) covering ages 17-18.

General Argument
The education through grades 1-12 offers the basic knowledge to life undertakings as well as the way of relating to one another. The business world, on the other hand, requires skills that rely on the ability of one to relate in a business sense with another (Stephen, 2007). These skills are therefore very important in the lives of young people, some of whom may not make it to colleges and universities. Those skills will, therefore, come in handy in their lives regardless of where they live.
According to Stephen (2007), the most important thing in life is to understand one’s finances, whereby one should understand tips for surviving the economy, have a well-drawn wealth care kit, which acts as a guide for financial wellness, as well as gaining skills for financial calculations. Financial courses should, therefore, be included in grades 1-12 in order to prepare young people to be able to make sound financial decisions throughout life’s ups and downs. This course should involve practical articles, worksheets, tips, and valuable resources to assist them in understanding and managing their money.
The course will also help them to sail through tough economic times, through giving them tips that can ensure their financial well being, as well as give them ideas on the best course of financial actions both short and long term and ways of developing plans to reach the actions regardless of their current situations. Financial courses are therefore important in grades 1-12 because throughout the lifetime, these children will be faced with many financial decisions and the course will have prepared them with advice for such situations
