Michigan Passes High School Financial Literacy Education Requirement

By NAIFA on 6/21/22 10:49 AM

NAIFA is proud that Michigan is the 14th state to embrace a personal finance education course requirement. Michigan's legislation requires that all high school students take a half-credit course in personal finance before they graduate. The Michigan House of Representatives passed HB 5190 by a vote of 94-13 and the bill passed the state's Senate in May with a vote of 35-2. Members of NAIFA-Michigan, who first created this concept a decade ago with legislation to create optional courses, celebrate the signature of Governor Whitmer updating Michigan’s high school curriculum to include a financial literacy course.
