In downtown Raleigh, House lawmakers are debating House Bill 924 - legislation that would require high school students take and pass a financial literacy course prior to earning their diploma.
The Senate passed their version of the bill earlier this week.
According to the bill's language, at a "minimum," the financial literacy course would require students learn about:
*The true cost of credit choosing and managing a credit card.
*Borrowing money for an automobile or other large purchase.
*Credit scoring and credit reports*
*Planning and paying for post-secondary education
*Other relevant financial literacy issues
What do think about such a course being a requirement to graduate? Should such a movement be nationwide? Do you see any downside to this? We're curious to hear from you please comment below..
