Did you hear the great news…
The news about the government’s new initiative to teach our children financial literacy?
Yeah, me neither.
Some of us are old enough to remember when our schools offered practical classes to accompany academic studies. Subjects like Home Ec, Shop, and others recognized that not every student was college material…
And also that there was more to life than just academic knowledge.
Those kinds of classes are mostly extinct. The focus is much more on college prep. But the need for financial literacy—more important now than ever—has never been a priority in our schools.
