Andrea Wasko, The Importance of Higher Education and Ways to Fund It

The Importance of Higher Education and Ways to Fund It is a program that will educate middle school students in San Luis Obispo County and their families about the importance of obtaining a college education and ways to fund it. Financial literacy is not emphasized in the educational system and most youth lack the necessary knowledge and skills to become financially responsible adults. The President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy wrote, “Today’s schoolchildren are ill-equipped to understand personal finance and make their way in the modern financial world.”
