Monetary Education Needed in Schools

Posted on December 29, 2007 @ 1:14 pm

There are always those people we think of in life that seem like we could meet and grow rich just by touching them. In reality, we know that this is not possible, but what is possible is to learn to think like these people.

In my opinion, all rich people have one thing in common; that is being able to think outside the box. If they thought like everyone else, they would not have gotten to be where they are today.

One thing that really flabbergasts me is the lack of education that kids have available to them today about money. Sure, we all learned about currency in elementary school, but we were never really taught about money. Anything I know about money, I learned from my parents, but I really think it should be part of a regular school curriculum.

When we are uninformed about money and money decisions, we are left with no choices. Most of us leave college, in debt, and still misinformed about money. This has got to change, as people are left with no choices. I don’t know about you, but my choice is to fight for the rights of our children to be informed. What is your next choice?
