An interesting read - although written from an American perspective, it is has the same key messages we need to think about in Education here in NZ...

"Build in financial literacy alongside language literacy and numeracy. The concepts are not all that hard; they are a heck of a lot easier to teach and learn than sentence structure or algebra: Don’t spend more than you earn. Save first and early. High interest debt kills. Go to college and study hard. Diversify investments."
