10 Topics of Money Management High Schools Should Teach
For some time, I’ve had a great concern that our school systems are failing to see the necessity of teaching students personal money management. In a country such as the United States, this is an absolute disgrace.
Students graduate from high school and many haven’t a clue about important money matters, as evidenced by their bad financial decisions. We can’t rely on parents to teach these concepts either, since many of them haven’t learned or practiced good basic money management. Teaching personal finance must begin in the early grades and progress through high school so that the students will be prepared when they enter college.
