My school is on trimesters and we don’t always get to cover every single concept I want to cover. If you have to pick your 5 most important financial literacy topics, what would they be?

When NGPF surveyed teachers in August of 2015, we found that these were the top 6 topic areas covered:

1) Budgeting (94% of respondents)
2) Credit cards/credit scores (91%)
3) Savings (88%)
4) Checking accounts (88%)
5) Taxes (83%)
6) Investing (81%)

My top 5 topics for financial literacy are Paying for College, Taxes, Credit Cards/Scores, Checking, and Savings. Many of my students are first generation, college-bound students and the information in the Paying for College Unit is essential for them. They have very little knowledge about navigating the financial aid system and typically have no family members that they can use as resources.

Oh, man…

1). Budgeting, because it’s essential and kind of fun (am I sick?).
2). Checking, because it’s the foundation for TONS of other transactions.
3). Credit, because it’s the easiest place to REALLY screw yourself up, and it can take forever to fix once you let it happen.
4). Student loans, because how you pay for college has consequences that can last 25 YEARS…
5). Investing — this is my new pet passion. With the gap in net wealth in this country getting huger by the day, I feel it’s a social justice issue that ALL young people learn how investing works. If you live in a community where “investing is something OTHER people do…” and no one teaches you the importance of a 401(k) or other retirement fund. EEEK. Even though you can’t teach EVERYTHING about investing in the scope of a high school class, at least if students become familiarized with the lingo and some basic strategies, they’ll feel a little more at home in the “investment world.” That’s my soap box for the evening… :)

Job/Career selection, because this will help them to set a budget!
Budgeting
Credit (two ways to make your life much harder—-have a baby before you are ready, and get into CC debt)
Insurance- to protect what you have worked so hard to achieve
Paying for College
