Financial Literacy For Kids, And Beyond!

May 4, 2021

Ever wonder why you were required to learn algebra, but not how to balance a checkbook and file your taxes? Although personal finance and accounting are offered as an elective in many high schools, they're not often required for graduation.

This hour, we talk to Nan Morrison - President and CEO, Council for Economic Education about teaching our children to be more financially literate. The secret is starting them young! 

Do you wish you had the chance to learn subjects like investing, credit, and even just basic budgeting? We want to hear from you. 

GUESTS:

  • Nan Morrison - President and CEO, Council for Economic Education
  • Lew DeLuca - Coordinator, Student Financial Literacy & Advising at Southern Connecticut State University
