Every day we hear about the “gap”. We hear about the education gap, the wealth gap, the technology gap. Some people are at a disadvantage, some people are reaping all the rewards.
But I’ve grown concerned about another gap, one that does not get nearly the attention it deserves. It’s the gap between what we’re expected to know financially, and what we’re taught.
The amount of personal finance education in this country, and the attention that it gets, is disgusting. In my opinion, if introduced correctly, financial education in our schools could have the single largest impact on the success of future generations (and the country as a whole).
And that’s why I’ve decided to act. I just created a petition on Change.org to ask our federal government to push the need for financial education throughout the country.
Please take a moment (it takes less than 60 seconds in total) to sign on.
And thank you in advance for your help!
