Lawmakers Approve Bill to Include Financial Course in Graduation Requirement
Michigan high school students could soon have a new option to fulfill their graduation requirements.
High school seniors must pass a half-credit economics course to graduate.
A bill heading to Governor Snyder’s desk would let students take a financial literacy course to fulfill that.
School code already allows a course in financial literacy to fill one math class.
Supporters say the change would give teachers more flexibility and students a better understanding of basic finances.
