Hi,

I believe we should be making financial literacy a part of the school curriculum to give each and everyone of our children a fair shot at life.

Children should be taught how to manage money, how money actually works and how to make it work for them.

I believe that the times of get an education, get a good job and earn a good wage are worthless without the teaching of how to utilise money.

The covid pandemic has highlighted this situation with many people losing their 'jobs' and now not knowing how they will keep their heads above water.

We need to end this cycle and I believe by teaching our children how money works and how to make it work for them we will lessen the rich/poor divide.

I believe this can be acheived by making (but not limited to) the following examples a part of the school curriculum:

What is money

How money works

How to budget

Forex trading

etc......

The way times have changed over the years is a call for education to change.  Children should and must be taught how to look for sustainable opportunities and be self sufficient when it comes to earning an income.

There is no longer a need to solely focus on securing a job when our jobs are no longer secure.

But there is a need to take responsibility now, for the sake of future generations.

Please help to make financial literacy a part of the school curriculum and show our children that the world is full of equal opportunities.
