SURVEY SAYS: Basic Financial Education in K-12 Schools

I have seen many suggestions that basic financial education should start when children are in school.

 

Last week, I asked NewsDash readers, “Do you think basic financial education should be taught in K-12 schools, and if so, starting at what grade?”

 

Not surprisingly, the majority of respondents (95.8%) do think basic financial education should be taught in K-12 schools. However, 2.8% said it should not and 1.4% had no opinion.

 

Asked what grade basic financial education should start, the majority of readers (55.7%) selected elementary grades (K-5). Twenty percent said Grade 6, 2.9% said Grad 7, 7.1% chose Grade 8, 8.6% selected Grade 9, 2.9% said Grade 10, and Grades 11 and 12 were each chosen by 1.4% of respondents.

 

There were many comments by readers about the importance of starting financial education early, even before children start school. Some noted that parents should also teach these skills,
