Feedback at 5:00- High School Requires Students to Take Finance Class to Graduate

Posted: Updated:

For even the most fiscally savvy, managing your finances can still be a headache.

Many students who graduate from high school are not prepared for all the financial pressures of their new-found adulthood.

So, Holmen High School in Wisconsin is requiring the class of 2013 to take a personal finance class to graduate.

The syllabus includes learning about credit scores and managing your debt.

Students also use a computer simulation where they practice budgeting and making major purchases.
