There’s a school of thought that says financial educations doesn’t help when students become adults. We find that hard to believe. We’re more inclined to think the subject may not be taught correctly. Let’s face it. For many adults, finance is boring. Imagine being 15 and sitting in a class room listening to a lecture about finance.
Kids, such as those from New Jersey’s Teaneck High School, prefer more active learning. Real life scenarios taught actively and that’s relatable may be more beneficial. We like what this school is doing and look forward to seeing the long-term results. We hope to see this kids avoid future financial mistakes.
