Baltimore City Council examining fin lit requirements
BALTIMORE (7/21/09)--The Baltimore City Council will meet this week regarding a bill on financial literacy requirements in city schools. The bill would request that the city’s school board examine the feasibility of requiring students to pass a course in financial literacy to graduate from Baltimore City Schools. The bill is pending in the council’s Education Committee. The Maryland and District of Columbia Credit Union Association (MDDCCUA) supports efforts to promote financial literacy on behalf of the Maryland State Task Force on Financial Literacy and the Maryland Board of Education. MDDCCUA said it strongly believes that financial literacy education should be promoted within Maryland’s schools. Seven counties in Maryland already have a financial literacy requirement to graduate from high school.
