The Introduction of Financial Literacy in Schools Will be a Major Benefit for Students.

On Thursday the Government of Saskatchewan announced financial literacy will be available across all high schools in the province.  The CEO of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Steve McLellan says it’s a huge step forward for students.  He explains the people who are going to benefit from this are the generation of students who are going to take the program, know more about credit card use, know more about budgeting, know while they can still spend their own money as they choose if they spend it wisely and with knowledge they will have greater control over it and that will help them in their early years if they want to save for post secondary, it’ll help them in their years of buying cars and homes and it will help them in their retirement years.

             

McLellan adds it’s going to be perhaps the most transformational change opportunity for kids since we taught them how to read.
