CEE in the News: Survey of the States Data Featured on The Motley Fool

POSTED: September 19, 2012 | BY: Leslie Rasimas | TAGS: , , , ,

A recent article in The Motley Fool, Why Financial Education Must Be Taught in Our Schools, takes data from CEE’s Survey of the States and looks at the real lack of financial literacy and personal finance education in our country.

Data from the Survey:

  • Only 25 states require a high school course in economics to be offered.
  • Only 22 states require a high school course in economics to be taken.
  • Only 14 states require a course in personal finance to be offered.
  • Only 13 states require a course in personal finance to be taken.

What does this mean for the future of our country when so few students are getting the education they need to be financially fit? The Motley Fool’s Jason Moser examines that question in his article, available here.
