Governor Tony Evers recently signed a bill requiring one semester of financial literacy education in Wisconsin’s schools. The bill impacts students who will be graduating from high school in 2028.
Students will be required to learn about credit and debt, money management, education and employment, saving, investing, and insurance.
The bill passed the Wisconsin legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support, despite criticism that it has not been paid for. With this bill now signed into law, Wisconsin joins 23 other states in requiring financial education as a requirement for high school graduation.
