Financial Literacy Legislation
The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy and CitiFinancial’s Office of Financial Education teamed up to track financial education requirements in each state using an online map located at http://jumpstart.org/state-financial-education-requirements.html
Four states - Missouri, Utah, Tennessee and Virginia - require at least a one-semester course devoted to personal finance.
Twenty-one states - Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia - require personal finance instruction be incorporated into other subject matter.
The remaining states have no requirement. (Personal finance may be taught electively.)
