Math and Money Fun for Students
TheSimpleDollar.com - Guide to securing your child's credit future and Guide to securing your college student's credit future. Arecent study found that over half (study estimated 70%) of Americans are effectively financially illiterate. Which probably isnít surprising given the fact that many young people are never taught basic financial concepts. For example, only about 20 states require a personal finance class for high school students. So, in an effort to be a part of the solution, they have created a series of guides designed for students and parents that give practical advice on developing and building upon healthy financial habits throughout one's life as well as a comprehensive handbook on credit.
