    This is such an important article because youth who are not properly educated in financial literacy are severely handicapped as adults. I agree with the writer that reparing students to be financially capable requires help from parents, schools, the private sector, and the public sector. So much is at stake, that we can't allow our youth to get through high school without being well equipped to deal with the world's platform of financial literacy.

    Financial literacy should begin in the home where parents can guide their
    children as well as help control their spending habits. Classes teaching
    financial literacy are also valuable. Great article!
