Maryland bills call for financial literacy courses in schools, prisons

septennially March 16, 2018

Two bills being considered in the Maryland Senate look to bring more financial literacy and entrepreneurship education to state high school students and prison inmates.

Sen. Barbara Robinson, a Baltimore City Democrat, said she has heard from people in her constituency who have graduated high school without knowing basic banking skills, or who have run up high amounts of debt in college because they never learned how credit works. She is the lead sponsor of the two bills that are aiming to change that.
