Back when I was taking my one day workshops to high schools all across my state, it was so surprising to me to see how inconsistent financial education was. In one school I visited, money was only taught as a remedial math course. Another school told the math teacher who wanted to teach money that it wasn’t rigorous enough. At yet at another school, one of the three business elective teachers snuck it in to her curriculum.
Now that I work with families all across the states I see the inconsistencies continue. I have worked with one client whose school does require that their students take a personal finance class! Some clients have had the option to learn about money through electives. And yet others have no access to financial education at all.
It is shocking to me because money is something that we all interact with on a daily basis. In addition, one of the first things we ask young people to do when they become adults is a major financial decision - college.
This is why including financial education in my programs is so important to me.
