Financial Literacy Education in Schools
Financial literacy education is the ability to make informed financial decision through the education of the individual on key money management components such as: savings, financial planning, budgeting, risk management and investment. This initiative our organization has brought into the classroom was initially conceived by the world Bank Group and its sub-arm, The organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as a fall-out of the global financial crisis of 2008. We learnt that one of the major causes of the global finanacial system of 2008 was as a result of bad financial decision, taken by many Americans on their mortgage system and monumental default by many of their citizens on financial commitment amongst many other factors.
Having done detailed research on the impact of financial literacy of an individual/citizen of a country and its economic impact on the individual and its nation at- large, we became determined to educate our young ones, hence took it to the classroom.
Now that our nation Nigeria is encouraging entrepreneurship amongst its youth, we felt, they must be financially literate first so as to be successful as entrepreneurs. Warren Buffet said and I quote “If you are not financially literate, you can’t be a successful entrepreneur”.
Financial literacy is a core life skill for participating in modern society. Children are growing up in an increasingly complex world of finance where they will eventually need to take charge of their own financial future.
National surveys show that young adults have amongst the lowest levels of financial literacy. This is reflected by their general inability to choose the right financial products and often a lack of interest in understanding sound financial planning. Even from an early age, children need to develop the skills to help choose between different career and education options and manage any discretionary funds they may have, whether from allowances or part time jobs. These funds may entail the use of savings accounts or Bank Cards (organization for economic co-operation and development).
The "OECD" Principles and Good Practices for Financial Education and Awareness recommend that financial education start as early as possible and be taught in schools, including financial education as parts of the school curriculum is a fair and efficient policy tool. Financial Education is long-term process Building it into curriculums from an early age allows children to acquire the knowledge and skills to build responsible financial behavior throughout each stage of their education. This is especially important as parents may be ill-equipped to teach their children about money and levels of financial literacy are generally low around the world.
