Best site for financial literacy for HS seniors and adults?

Post by fortfun » Tue Apr 14, 2020 12:30 pm

Hi Bogleheads,
Besides this site, what other sites would you recommend for HS seniors, and other adults, to use for financial literacy? I'd prefer non-commercial sites that don't stand to gain anything from the end user. Not really looking for Dave Ramsey stuff, as he stands to gain too much from his followers. Are there any good sites, like Bogleheads, for general financial literacy? Just thinking about questions like:

Is it a good idea to take out a loan for college?
Should I get a loan for this car?
Should I save to buy for a house or just rent?
Should I get this credit card?
How do I make a budget?
What's a good bank?
Should I buy individual stocks?
What's a good brokerage to invest at?

I really like this site. My daughter is 8 and we’ve been doing a few lessons per week. All the information is free.

The podcast is excellent too. They’ve had Rick Ferri a few times in the past 2 weeks.

This is a site that gives you a "virtual" credit card and teaches the participant about annual percentage rate (APR), not paying the minimum balance due and other concepts around having a credit card. I'm a retired teacher and I used it when I taught my high school seniors about Financial Literacy.
I think the site works best with Internet Explorer or Firefox.
