Survey of the States Released
The 2011 Survey of the States was recently released which is a biennial report that brings attention to the critical importance of economics and personal finance education by documenting its status in the US. The survey shows that 22 states require a high school courses in economics be taken, and that 14 states require a course in personal finance to be offered. The survey shows that while there has clearly been progress since the first survey in 1998, over the last two years the trend is slowing and in some cases moving backwards. In Kentucky, economics and personal finance education are not required courses, however the state's Program Review requirements include that states must show how financial education is being taught or integrated...
