Findings from the Council for Economic Education have once again encouraged local leaders to promote financial literacy in their schools.
California Assemblyman Roger Hernandez’ bill to bolster financial literacy instruction at high schools statewide is making progress. The Diamond Bar-Walnut Patch has more on his efforts.
“Financial literacy is an issue of equity. Not everyone is given an opportunity at home to be financially literate,” Hernandez said. “Teaching this topic at schools prepares our students to enter an increasingly competitive workforce and gives them the tools to help protect themselves against predatory lending, credit card fraud and other deceptive practices.”
