      Why should Financial Literacy be Taught to Our Students?

       

      Many 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 and STEM Goals.

      > It addresses practical skills that students will use in everyday life.

      Please share your thoughts and what you use in your school as well.
