If you could rate your financial well-being, what would it be? Maybe a confident B? Or maybe a more disturbing D-minus?

When we asked you earlier this year what you wish you had learned in school, many of you answered personal finance. And our listeners are not alone. In states across the country, dozens of personal finance bills are pending. Last week, Florida became the latest state to include financial literacy as a graduation requirement.

We cover topics that you would like to see included in a school curriculum. Today we continue our series, In Case You Missed It, with a look at personal finance education.

We discuss what makes a financial education course effective and preparing Americans to take charge of their own finances.

Kara Perez, Billy J. Hensley and Aaron Standish join us for the conversation.
