Update: Teaching Financial Literacy article in NYTimes

Post by livesoft »

An update to teaching financial literacy courses was published in early April 2021: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/02/your ... urses.html

The article has a number of links to available resources with some useful links for talking to your children about finances. I was surprised to find out that
As of early 2020, high school students in 21 states were required to take a personal finance course to graduate, according to the Council for Economic Education, which promotes economic and personal finance education for students in kindergarten through high school. That was a net gain of four states since the council’s previous count two years earlier.

I also was surprised and enjoyed the article's excellent links, including a quiz about topics I usually haven’t seen in financial quizzes:
