What's the problem?The National Jump$tart Coalition's High School Survey revealed that the financial literacy of teenagers is declining nationally - and sinking even faster in Ohio. The next survey takes place in 2013.
What can we do about it?
Ohio students are finally receiving lessons in personal finance. Ohio Senate Bill 311 mandates that all high schools, “beginning with students who enter the ninth grade for the first time on or after July 1, 2010…integrate the study financial literacy…so that every high school student receives instruction in those concepts." But this is just the beginning.
