The Five Keys to High School Financial Literacy

  1. Financial literacy topics must be taught in a course that students are required to take as a graduation requirement.
  2. Teacher training is critical. To effectively educate our students about personal finance, we need confident, well-trained educators.
  3. Funding is needed to ensure that these classes are offered to all high school students.
  4. In order to make sure that the high school classroom personal finance training is working, we need to give students quality standard assessments on knowledge and behaviors.
  5. Educators need easy access to quality curriculum, lesson plans, calculators, videos, games, applications, activities, projects, case studies, articles and expert volunteer speakers. A state’s online education platform is ideal for providing these tools.
