Massachusetts Financial Literacy Courses
Massachusetts is one of 12 states that does not require schools to offer financial education course to students, despite research showing that 6.9% of high school students in the United States can be considered financially literate.
K-12 students are a captive audience for financial education, which is why is it critical to focus on efforts to identify best practice for this audience . High school students entering adulthood are a particularly important population, as many of the financial behaviors they adopt will likely stay with them throughout their life.
Demand that Massachusetts House Representatives Jeffery Sanchez and Stephen Kulik pass bill S.2374 to establish financial literacy education for students in K-12 by signing this petition, and join us on May 9th at the Massachusetts State House at 12:00 pm to deliver our petition.
