Why should Financial Literacy be Taught to Our Students?
75% of High Schoolers have the Financial Literacy of a 5th grader.
Most teens graduate and do not know how to balance a checkbook, do a simple
personal budget or do an EZ-Tax Return. Why is that? Many school are adding
personal financial literacy to their Math standards and here in Texas administrators
are adding the subject to their Career & Technical Education Program.
What makes a good Financial Literacy/Money Management program?
> Is it Upbeat and interactive to capture their attention?
> It addresses State Requirements, Common Core and STEM Goals.
> It addresses practical skills that students will use in everyday life.
