Financial literacy education may soon become a requirement for many more high school students. Several state legislatures, including Georgia, Michigan, and South Carolina are considering passing legislation that will mandate a personal finance course or credit before graduation. Currently, 23 states have some form of personal finance mandate for their schools. But momentum in other states has increased due to the pandemic and the recent recession’s impact on the national economy. While some parents have argued that it should be up to them, and not the state, to educate their children on finances, many of the proposed mandates are expected to become law later this year.
