Today’s students are offered a myriad of subject matter to learn, but a sadly low percentage are not learning a subject that will help them their entire life.
Business Insider reports according to Next Gen Personal Finance, only 16.4% of U.S. students… are required to take a personal finance course to graduate high school.
Here are stats that prove a Personal Finance course for students is needed.
- 76% of Millennials lack basic financial knowledge
- 70% of Millennials are stressed and anxious about saving for retirement
- 45% of students regret how much in loans they have
- 34% live with their parents
With $1.45 trillion in student debt, students need guidance in how to better handle finances.
Be sure to ask if your kid’s school offers a Personal Finance class/course, and help avoid them living with you when their 40! LOL.
