Creator Herman, Michele
Maniam, Balasundram
Description The lack of mandated personal finance curriculum in American schools is an issue that has gained considerable momentum in recent years. Studies have indicated that personal finance education contributes to financial literacy and financial success.

This paper investigates the impact of personal finance education on financial well-being and presents arguments for including personal finance education into core curriculum. This paper also provides an overview of the current trends in the US economy that are dramatically affecting the financial management behaviors of American households and their financial well-being
