This one is out in far left field, even for Portlandia. In an era of widespread illiteracy, low graduation rates, over-crowded classrooms, only so much money to go around, and even cuts to the number of school days, why is valuable educational time in elementary school of all places, being wasted on something like this??

To my knowledge, elementary school students are not competent enough in math to understand much less balance a checkbook, nor are they regularly involved negotiating a lease, rent, mortgages, utilities or anything else having to do with housing. None of them can legally have a checking account, much less write a check for anything.

This is an incredible waste of time, and the people who are paying for this in their school district ought to be raising as much of a stink as they can. This is outright political programming that has absolutely no place in a public school.
