Education is the most important thing that we can do together as a community. For so many of the challenges we face–unemployment, poverty, income growth, income inequality–a great education is a major component of the solution.
In today’s global economy, consumers have an even greater need for financial literacy. The current economic crisis has made clear the need for financial education. Knowing the basics of personal banking, as well as the larger financial world is a key step to creating lifelong learning who are responsible members of society.
If we are going to remain an economically competitive nation, it is an imperative for young people to understand how the economy works and how to achieve financial security in their own lives.
