What Kid Would Know the Definition of 'Subprime'?

I have a major problem with today's strip. I don't know how old Hurrican Hattie is but I think she's young enough to not know what subprime means. I had to look it up and still don't understand the definition. Also, the teacher actually calls Hattie, Hurricane? Is the teacher that scared of her? Another problem I have is this strip was probably drawn in late November, early December and there is a TV reference. If I had a comic strip I would not reference TV because of the current Writer's Guild Strike. Once my shows ran out of episodes I quit watching TV, which is why I am now constantly online.
