There is a bit of a chat going on within the current mentor program about the teaching of financial literacy within schools. I have no doubt this is probably a good thing but I would actually like them to get around to teaching actual literacy first.
The discussion reminded me of this bloke – Dr Tae the skateboarding physicist. I have seen this talk he gave several times and each time I am impressed by him. I also cannot help contrast him to my high school physics teacher whose idea of a novel teaching method was to leave the heating off in the classroom in the middle of winter. What a dickhead.
