My state is trying to make Personal Finance a required class for graduation. I think this is something we’ve needed for a long time. — it made me wonder if any other states are doing this.

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – A pre-filed bill in South Carolina would make it a graduation requirement for South Carolina high school students to take a personal finance class.

State Senator Luke Rankin (R-Conway) pre-filed the bill in December 2018 with the state Senate education committee.

 

Five states–Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia– currently require such a course.

 

Another 12 states include personal finance content in an economics course.
