Only 43% of 12th grade students tested proficient on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) economics assessment, and even in the more limited area of financial literacy. American teenagers fall in the middle of the pack globally. Unfortunately, many parents are ill-equipped to instruct their children in economics and/or personal finance, and teachers, too, are often unprepared to impart even basic levels of this knowledge. History and common sense tells us economics and related financial literacy changes the way people see the world and their roles in it.
