Each year the month of April is dedicated to Financial Literacy here in the United States. It has been officially recognized since March 2004 when the United States Senate passed Resolution 316. But, do we really need a whole month dedicated to financial literacy?
Well per a recent FINRA survey nearly two-thirds of Americans can’t pass a basic test of financial literacy. In my home state of New York, the average student loan debt is $29K. My family and I were in over $100,000 of consumer debt.
So it’s clear a whole month of financial education is needed. In some cases, a month may not be enough, and its one of the main reason I’m championing the topic with our local school districts. If young students can learn about these subjects before they begin their financial lives, think of the advantage and options they will have.
Here is a series of interviews on the topic. Please enjoy the different perspectives.
