FLEC Subjects Have a Direct Impact on the Future Financial Security of Our Nation’s Youth

(Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, and Career Education)

The FLEC Alliance was formed to provide resources for those who teach financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career education while raising awareness about the vital role these subjects have on the financial well-being of individuals and communities across the country.

Members of the FLEC Alliance are calling upon educators, policymakers, and the general public to:

Why FLEC?

Subjects currently taught via public education leave students ill-prepared for the world they’ll face in adulthood. Nearly all students will leave school lacking crucial knowledge, a failure that could lead them down a path of long-term financial insecurity.

FLEC subjects have a direct relationship with our youth’s ability to earn and manage their money; yet they are missing from most school curricula. Put simply:

  • Financial Literacy education helps people acquire the knowledge and behaviors they need to make informed, qualified financial decisions about their money.
  • Entrepreneurship and career education provide the skill sets necessary to earn money, both for daily life and to pursue longer-term goals.

The ability to earn, manage, and invest money lies at the heart of financial security. The math is simple: Higher Income Potential + Increased Knowledge on how to Manage Finances + Development of Positive Financial Habits = Greater Potential for Financial Security.

Isn’t giving our children financial security and the knowledge they need to live the lifestyles they desire the real education we want our high school graduates to gain?
