Increase Financial Education In Schools

This petition had 27 supporters

With a forever changing economy combined with finances being a crucial aspect to one’s life, it’s important that we have an education system that properly teaches, supports and develops financial education amongst young people.

High schools lack appropriate education in the area of basic financial knowledge. Every student should be aware of basic financial terms, ideas, practices and principles. Those who argue that it’s a parent’s job to teach teens this kind of information, frequently forget that not everyone has parents who are financially sound themselves, or who are interested in having these vital conversations with their child.

It should be noted that a sound financial education plays an active role in shaping ones life, as personal financial management will always be important, relevant and necessary.

A stronger push needs to be made against schools in order to see this vital change introduced. Sign the campaign to help encourage an increase in financial education within our school system!
