A Big Opportunity to Make An Impact
According to the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center, 2 in 3 adults globally are financially illiterate –an issue with deep roots stemming from underexposure at a young age. In the United States where operationEconomics is based, only 20 out of 50 states require the completion of an economics class to graduate high school. Of that, only 16 have a state-mandated test of economic concepts, which hasn't changed since 2014, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Studies and economists consistently demonstrate the importance of early economic education exposure in private and public decision-making in all countries, yet negligence from school educators and administrators in addition to the lack of funding at the national and state/provincial scale for local classrooms make economic education largely inaccessible for most K-12 students worldwide.
