5. When my husband taught high school

For a few years he taught Occupational Work Adjustment. It was targeted at kids who were poor students and at risk for dropping out. After 4 classes they went to jobs and got paid - usually at other schools (teacher helper, janitorial assistant, secretarial assistant, etc.) although some had fast food jobs. He taught them how to make a budget, apply for a loan, balance a checkbook, things like that. They got credit towards graduation for it.
