Bobbi Rebell wrote How to Be a Financial Grownup: Proven Advice from High Achievers on How to Live Your Dreams and Have Financial Freedom to raise awareness about the urgent need to promote financial literacy.
According to PwC, less than a quarter of millennials (18-35 years old) demonstrated basic financial knowledge. A lot of that has to do with our failure to prioritize teaching financial literacy in the classroom.
PwC found that only 12 percent of K-12 teachers incorporate financial education into their classroom.
