September 20, 2017

The Missouri State Board of Education has approved revised personal finance standards for public schools. This was the first review of the standards since 2006. Missouri is one of only 17 states that require personal finance coursework in high school, according to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. “Financial literacy is a vital component in the education of Missouri students,” Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven said. “We are committed to ensuring all high school graduates are prepared for life, and personal finance courses can help them reach that goal.”
