The only economics class I had in high school was locked behind another course on top of it which was U.S. government. Unfortunately, (btw I'm from California) this course is only available to high school SENIORS. This was the one class I was dying to put on my class registration since middle school. Due to distance learning, our year long class was cut short down to a semester. We spent so much time learning about U.S. gov. that we barely had 3 days to cover econ (and learn about financial literacy) before the the semester ended. A lot of my peers were incredibly lazy and didn't do any work, so during the U.S. gov portion of the class, the teacher was held up and which caused the entire class to be delayed on lectures. In the end, school didn't teach us anything worth while. Most of my financial literacy came from mimicking my mom, personal experience, and watching YouTube videos.

My dad continues to teach me about money. Some lessons are harder to learn than others. Thanks to him I am debt free with healthy retirement savings and good credit score. I encourage younger friends to start retirement savings early all the time.

Why would they teach people to be financially literate? They want to make more money off of us.

Since economics is usually a requirement class in high school, schools should add at least a few months of personal finance. My school offered that, but I graduated high school early. Luckiky, I have been learning about money on my own for years.

The worst part is the schools that do teach financial literacy teach it to freshman when money and finances aren't anything they are concerned about

I believe that employers may not want you to be too financially literate because most employees with good financial talent may leave the work force too soon.

Where did I learn about money? From the realization that I needed it after I realized that I was poor. One has to have money to make money.

Monopoly and less well known games like CashFlow can also help.

I got lessons about money as well as a kid. We even had a dedicated week for it all throughout primary school. It was the one week at school where you had to pay for things (with fake money of course). You could rent play equipment, books that were usually not there, and for the kids 10 and up you could even earn money by helping out toddlers or staying after school to clean up. At the end of the week we had a circus where you could spend it on delicious and fun things.

My parents also taught me a lot. Both are incredibly frugal and love budgeting. We got pocket money that we could spend on whatever we liked, but if we wanted something more expensive we had to save and/or do jobs in and around the house. I got my first bank account at age 12 and my first paper round to put some money in there. I had to pay for my own cellphone, clothing I wanted but didn't need, and other fun stuff. Stupid teenager me liked fun things and saved too little, adult me loves saving (it's so addicting).

Finance nor economics is a required course and thus its expected of me to figure this all out on my own. But hey that required art class gave me… a really shitty mug I made back in 8th grade. Yay?

Why did they use black parents as the examples? We struggled growing up but my parents went out of their way to teach me their concept of financial literacy, which included finding a good job, investing in stocks, and dabbling in cryptocurrency which has made me more money than any job I’ve ever worked. There are so many racial disparities in America but you’re allowed to form your own opinions based on what you know and what I’ve told yoy

When so much of the economy is based around people borrowing (loans or credit) to purchase stuff they either don't need or can't afford (college degree, car, marriage), it is very easy to forget the fundamentals of budget management.

I've always been interested in finance so I got an entry level job at an Independent Financial Advisory firm. They paid for my exams to get a diploma in financial planning so I could become a fully qualified and regulated IFA.

I wish people would stop comparing America to some of the smallest countries in the world…. Let's see how much people admire the Netherlands after it's combined population balloons to over 300 million.

It’s so dumb to be financial uneducated, and it’s dumber to think financial education is parents’ job, and you know you are just a pile of shit to any businesses if you are financially educated.

Schools gave up teaching things adults in training need to be better citizens and went with social engineering.

Biggest crime here is that this video, after two years being published, only had 233k views.
