I honestly think that we should just teach it so that people can know how to do the conversions.
Not sure what they do in your neck of the woods, but even in the Cali boonies where I'm at, they teach metric in middle school... and the teacher at my kid's school rails on how ridicurous the "stupid system" is compared to metric... Of course, other kids from "redneck families" are so "anti-the-rest-of-the-world" that I'm not sure how much difference it's going to make if this is taught or not...
