Credit scores and ‘real’ life skills

Dear editor: I really enjoyed the article that was printed on how credit scores affect loan approvals and interest rates. I’m a senior and my high school doesn’t have any classes that deal with credit scores or other life skills that are needed for the “real” world. I’m getting a credit card fairly soon and reading this article makes me realize how little I know about how loans and interest rates work. This is a problem because this knowledge is going to be extremely crucial to me very soon. I appreciate the tips and increased understanding of how credit scores work, and I think you should write more articles about life skills directed towards teenagers soon going off on their own. This would be very helpful as many of my friends and I don’t know many simple skills needed to survive after high

school.
