How about teaching budgetting in schools? How about teaching the idea of saving for things instead of borrowing? Credit is more difficult to get nowadays, so I think at least some saving is going to be essential. And if you're income has gone down, you really need to budget carefully to save anything.
There could be specialist classes for particular groups too - for instance, older kids who are about to go to uni, or start work, or who might be unemployed.
If teachers haven't got time (& I can completely understand if they haven't) there are plenty of organisations who would be delighted to go into schools & do some lessons on finance.

In primary, they are still too young and not really interested past how to pay for things in shops! They can relate to saving their pocket money for special items, and generally teachers do tackle money management appropriate to the age group when the opportunity arises.
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
