What Critics Get Wrong About Financial Education

Doubters of financial education make four great points but reach the wrong conclusion every time.     Is it really possible that dozens of nations, thousands of nonprofits and tens of thousands of educators are wrong to want to teach kids about money in school? That’s what critics would have us believe. Certainly there is room for skepticism, and consensus thinking isn’t always right after all. Yet crowd thinking usually has a solid foundation.
