Why is Financial Education so important?
Financial Illiteracy is a national crisis. Our nation is rapidly sinking into a sea of debt and financial dependency. This epidemic may seem daunting and, at times, impossible to overcome, but the American Public Education Foundation thinks otherwise. We believe financial literacy begins in the classroom at the earliest ages. Together, we can embrace our responsibility to prepare the next generation for learning, for leadership, and for life, and change the course of their future.
