The time, effort, and money would be better spent if they taught them science - in particular chemistry. Not deep dark chemistry but the chemistry involved in daily life and some enrichment beyond that - so they're not taken for suckers by scammers and politicians who make stuff up.

Why chemistry? Well, physics would also be good - but the current attitude vilifies chemistry and 'chemicals' - product making the preposterous claim they're 'chemical free'. Really - take a look around you and realize how little would be there without chemistry.
