Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike, Writes About The New Legislation That Mandates Personal Financial Education In High School Throughout Michigan.

Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, repeatedly encourages parents to teach their children about finances, and now the state has mandated that the school system throughout the state of Michigan teach children financial basics starting in the 2023-24 school year.

Auburn Hills, MI — January 26, 2023— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new article post on the company website entitled, “Finally, Personal Financial Education In High School Is Law In Michigan.” Mr. Boike clearly supports the idea and continues to encourage families to teach their children personal finance basics too.

As Boike notes, Last July, Michigan became one of 14 states which have mandated personal finance education starting in grades 8 through 12.” He continues, “This has been a long time coming and makes me happy to know that finally kids are going to get at minimum some basic foundation in financial education. This most important aspect of life has been, in my opinion, ignored way too long.” According to Boike, “Financial education is among the most basic requirements for a stable life. Several laws that focus on financial education go into effect when kids head back to school in the fall 2023-24 school year.”

“According to The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority,” Boike states, “about 66% of Americans are financially illiterate.” He adds, “I’m delighted that Michigan has joined other states throughout the nation looking to put the next generation in a better position to navigate this particular stressor of modern life.”

Boike acknowldedges, “Financial issues have long been known to contribute to marital problems that often lead to divorce in this country. Perhaps the next generation will not be plagued with this particular issue to such a great degree anymore. As more and more young people become financially literate, hopefully they’ll enter marriage more prepared to make better financial decisions.”
