How much emphasis do you think is placed upon financial literacy in your state?  The Center for Financial Literacy at Champlain College has assigned a grade to each of the 50 states representative of their attempt to provide high school students with basic knowledge of personal finance.
The study was based upon CEE’s Survey of the States, a biennial reports that examines the status of economic education in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. According to the scale used by CFL Champlain College, nearly 60 percent of states earned a ‘C’ or lower with many states only offering finance courses as electives.
