"Who should teach children about personal finance? Ideally, it would be the child's parent or guardian. However, many adults do not have the knowledge necessary to teach such concepts. This is evident by the staggering amount of credit card debt in the United States and the astounding number of adults who claim they cannot balance their own checkbook. Many argue that schools must step in and teach personal finance. Adding this requirement to the compulsory curriculum would require that more teachers be hired, which many school districts cannot afford, and would increase the credit requirement for graduation." (Burgenni, Patrick K. "Teaching Finance: Whose Responsibility Is it?" U.S. Education News & Policy. 13 Feb 2006: 29-33)

    Children should be taught about personal finance, whether it is from parents, guardians, or teachers. This way they would not end up with a large amount of credit card debt.
