As College Debt Rises Suddenly There Is More Interest In Financial Literacy

Recommended Posts

I had the pleasure of teaching financial literacy for a couple of years before retiring. It was a very rewarding experience.But it open my eyes to the ignorance that exists . If we are to change the financial landscape as it currently stands, financial literacy can eventually make that happen but it might take years. Kudos to states like Virginia for requiring all high school students to take a required financial literacy class plus an exit test before graduating.

Here is another even newer NYTIMES article on what every high school student should know upon HS graduation  By Ron Leiber-One of the good guys.

Tim Ranzetta is trying to fill the void. His resources and his teacher training are FREE, and available anywhere in the country. Check him out: https://www.ngpf.org/about-us/ 

Here is Tim's lesson on student loans, since the first link is about student loans: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oEv2jUadBjAy79xX0gqON71Nn8kmVxVcQmNZME1QFqI/edit

If I remember  correctly, someone (maybe you) posted this before. It's quite a good site. I remember forwarding it to the teachers at my old work who taught/teach personal finance.

I'n not convinced a class in high school will make everyone suddenly financially literate. I learned the most by making hands on mistakes (LOL!!)  Still its definitely a start.
