The 5 Key Components of Financial Literacy

Educators work to include a wide array of studies within the required curriculum for young adults. However, there’s a key component of life in which students of all ages aren’t gaining enough knowledge: financial literacy. Now…you may be asking yourself, “What is financial literacy?” That’s a great question. Even though financial literacy is crucial to successful “adulting,” a mere 17 states require high school students to take a course on financial literacy. These courses have proven to have a direct impact on a student’s ability to make wise financial decisions. Plus, students who have some personal finance classes under their belts are much more likely to successfully save money, budget wisely and invest smarter.
