Make Personal Finance
Part of the Core Curriculum
We have about 26,000 high schools in the United States that graduate an average of 3.5 million students each year. Studies show that 84.6% of these students are ill-prepared to make major financial decisions such as buying a car, renting an apartment, mortgaging a house, starting a family, or securing a student loan.
Personal Finance should be a mandated course of study in our schools that all students are required to pass to graduate. I think you can agree that including Financial Literacy in our Core Curriculum is the best thing we can do for our students, society, and country.
Please help us make a difference by sending our petition to your local representative. Together we can fight for financial literacy for our future generations.
