It used to be all about balancing a checkbook, now it's all about NOT going into credit card debt and student loan debt. So the ques5tion remains, should schools teach kids how to handle money? A new poll of 1500 Americans said YES! 83% LOVE the idea, while another 9% said maybe, and only 8% think it's a bad idea. And should it start in high school or sooner? Let's face it, kids today learn all this fancy Common Core math that gets them nowhere (unless you're balancing a checkbook but who uses those anymore anyway). So start it in middle school and continue it on and once they hit college, open it up to 401k's and investing! Just our two cents.
