Balls for Financial Education

Changes to the national curriculum that encourage schools to teach children about tax, interest rates and personal budgeting were unveiled last month by the government. Ed Balls, the new secretary for children, families and schools, has called for 11 to 16-year-olds to be taught ‘economic well-being and financial capability’, but only if schools chooses to do so. The government hopes such lessons will help better prepare children for adult life.
