Thanks to a recent poll on Saving Without A Budget, it appears that Iâ€™m not alone in the belief that personal finance should be incorporated into the core curriculum of Americaâ€™s schools.
According to the poll, 89% of respondents stated that they believed that personal finance should be a required part of every childâ€™s education.
The logic behind teaching children and teenagers about personal finance is pretty obvious. Just think of all of the finance cliches that youâ€™ve heard: start investing as early as you can, the most important factor in investing is time, donâ€™t get into credit card debt, etc. - all things that are best to learn sooner rather than later.
