I believe that they should teach it so kids could learn how not to get beat up in the real world. Also if the number of swag rises then there will be more gangs and more gangs means more drugs and the drugs will help the economy.

This is a rather absurd topic. One especially, that is quite vague. Defining swag seems to be of great importance if we are to gain some sort of common ground. Swag, according to several different on-line dictionaries, is defined as a bundle of flowers. Referring to the more general usage of the word, it can either be attributed as a complement or insult. According to Urban Dictionary...perhaps I won't recommend you check Urban Dictionary because you may be offended. However, in this case, it seems you use the word swag as an synonym for crime.
There is not a need for a "swag course" in order for kids to "learn how not to get beat up in the real world." The already existing alternative is a self-defence class. Many elementary schools, as well as secondary schools ,offer self-defence classes.
It is apparent that there are far greater issues surrounding adult hood than people getting beat up. Three examples of issues of far greater importance are motivating kids to achieve higher marks or be motivated to do well in school so they can attend a good college or university, or at the very least, develop a good work ethic. The second example is getting a job; I feel people worry far more about finding employment in the future than the thought of getting beat up.
Lastly, kids should be more concerned with developing friendships. A course such as life skills would be far more useful than something as strange as a "swag course."
"Also if the number of swag rises then there will be more gangs and more gangs means more drugs and the drugs will help the economy."- I am not even sure where to start with this awfully peculiar statement. I am not sure what you mean by "drugs will help the economy." Illegal drugs? Prescription drugs? More people consuming drugs?
Where do you think the drugs come from? And how would they help the economy?
Gangs are notorious from committing criminal acts, and you want the number gangs to rise? That would surely create more crime and illegal drugs in society.
In conclusion, to teach a "swag course" in schools would be promoting more criminal acts and an increase in illegal drugs in society. That, precisely, is the exact opposite of what a majority, if not close to all people, want. As well, to teach a "swag course" is a paradoxical argument. You want to teach kids how to defend themselves so they can face the physical hard ships of life, but simultaneously, you want crime rate to increase and give society more drugs. How completely absurd.
