Should High Schools Teach Money Management? Only 8% of Us Say No


Here's a good question as school starts back up: Should high schools teach kids how to handle money and avoid debt? A new poll asked 1,500 people if personal finance should be taught in schools, and almost everyone says YES.

83% said "yes" or "DEFINITELY yes" . . . another 9% said maybe . . . and only 8% think it's a bad idea.

A similar survey a few years ago asked recent high school graduates what type of course would help them the most. And money management dominated with 50% of the vote. Math was next at 18%.
