The CFL is nationally known and respected for its extensive research and advocacy of financial literacy. From creating National Report Cards on High School and Adult Financial Literacy, Prepped for Success and its efforts with other national organizations, the White House, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Financial Literacy Education Commission, and the FDIC, the CFL is the credible, go-to source for the national conversation around financial education.
Using national data, CFL graded all 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.) on their efforts to produce financially literate high school graduates. In this report card, we measure how well our high schools are providing personal finance education.
When it comes to report cards, everyone wants an A, but did your state rank top-of-the class?
Adults often do not fully understand debit and credit cards, mortgages, banking, investment and insurance products and services, retirement planning, and many other financial topics.
As a critical component to our economy, how is your state handling adult financial literacy?
