You’ve heard about information literacy, diversity and racial literacy, and science literacy before, but how about financial literacy? Understanding how money works, from how to maintain a budget to the basics of investment, is crucial to both surviving and thriving in the modern world. However, many young Americans don’t get an adequate amount of financial education in school. The results are alarmingly evident when you look at the statistics: a recent survey from the National Financial Educators Council shows that 38% of individuals lost at least $500 in 2022 due to a lack of financial literacy—including 15% who said it set them back by $10,000 or more!
A lack of financial literacy can lead to bad credit, excessive debt, and even bankruptcy or foreclosure. Don’t let your students become statistics. Give them a solid head start on finance with Omnigraphics’ Teen Finance Series.
