State lawmakers apparently think Wisconsin high school graduates should be able to balance a checkbook and make car payments on time. W-B-A-Y reports legislation has been introduced in the Assembly that would make a personal finance course a graduation requirement in the state. The bill would be stronger than a measure introduced five years ago that added financial literacy to K-through-12 curriculums. California-based NextGen Personal Finance has worked with Wisconsin school districts as they set up financial literacy courses. The goal is to prepare students for their life after school.
