Youth and Economic Literacy


Youth & Economic Literacy We'll discuss the importance of teaching economic literacy to K-12 students across the state. We'll talk with people who are working to combat the lack of economic and financial knowledge in youth, especially in light of the current economic crisis, by teaching kids practical information about finance and economics. We'll hear about some of the programs that organizations throughout the state are putting forth to achieve the goal of more economic knowledge for kids and hear about some of the early results of the programs.
