With the passing of new legislation requiring Florida students to learn personal finance, Florida has become the biggest state mandating such a course. The bill, supported by bankruptcy lawyers and judges, will teach students about debt, investing, and checkbook balancing. Many bankruptcy law workers hope courses like these will completely eliminate the need for their profession. “What the bill is doing with financial literacy is really providing a foundation for students that’s going to be applicable in their lives regardless of what path they take,” Says Governor Ron DeSantis; at least for now, it appears Floridian education is being reared more towards practicality and real life circumstance than typical curriculum.
