PRLog - March 1, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- According to the State Department of Financial Institutions, more than 9 in 10 adults and students believe it is important for the people of the United States to have a good understanding of finance. However, only half of high school students say they ever have been taught finance in school.
Furthermore, according to demos.org, the average college graduate has nearly $20,000 in debt. Average credit card debt has increased 47 percent between 1989 and 2004 for 25- to 34-year-olds and 11 percent for 18- to 24-year-olds. Nearly one in five 18- to 24-year-olds is in "debt hardship," up from 12 percent in 1989.
