Module

Creating Young Investors


Author: Anne Kim and Tess Stovall
In The Middle Class Program

Abstract

This module proposes a federal grant program for state-mandated financial education that helps students gain the knowledge and money smarts to navigate today’s complex financial world.

Description

Now more than ever, young people need financial know-how and money smarts to make good financial decisions. Many college students today feel unprepared for coping with their financial future, and most have already made mistakes in managing their money on campus. Even with the great need to boost the financial knowledge of students, only three states offer a one-semester course in financial education. The federal government should reward and encourage states that offer mandatory financial education to high school students by providing grants to pay for curriculum development, training and materials. This module lays out the problem, outlines how to respond and provides suggestions to roll out your plan to the public.
