There is a clear trend of declining financial literacy, according to a study by FINRA Investor Education Foundation*. On average, four out of five young Americans couldn’t answer a majority of financial literacy questions correctly. While financial education can take many forms, from in-person advising to educational blog posts for adult consumers, one of the most impactful ways to build financial literacy from the ground up is through a school-based education program for middle and high school students.
