As the famous Cabaret lyrics goes, money makes the world go round. But financial literacy is not taught in most standard American K-12 public schools, leaving the brunt of teaching this invaluable subject to families and individuals. We, as college students and immigrants ourselves, can attest to the fact that a lack of formal financial education can often lead to large percentages of low-income, immigrant, and youth populations being unprepared to deal with the monetary realities of adulthood.
