Financial Wins Across America!

We’re seeing major Financial Literacy milestones taking place across America! Legislation in support of our efforts to strengthen financial education have recently passed. Just in the last few weeks we’ve seen Michigan, New Hampshire and now South Carolina join the growing list of states to guarantee every high school student will take a personal finance course prior to graduation!

And here in California we’re seeing funds being allocated to develop curriculum for financial literacy courses for K-12 schools. Let’s all take a moment to celebrate and continue our efforts toward educating our students and peers on the importance of financial education!
