"In today’s complex world, economic and financial literacy is a necessity. We cannot assume that kids will pick up these real world skills they need along the way. Building financial education into every classroom ensures they will gain this knowledge, and learn to make better choices in their lives—as consumers, investors, voters and participants in the global economy. Until every state requires financial and economic education, parents, along with classroom teachers, can play a crucial role in advocating for integrating lessons in personal finance and economics into the curriculum in their schools"
