By 2030, ALL students will take a one semester personal finance course before graduating from high school.
The NGPF community is making progress. In 2021, 20.6% of U.S. public high school students were guaranteed to take at least one semester-long personal finance course, up from 16.4% in 2018.
We have 9 more years to advocate and persuade so that every high schooler crosses the graduation stage with the financial skills they need to thrive into the future.
