Financial Illiteracy in Schools

Posted on: Fri 18 Aug 2017

Financial Basics Foundation Katrina Birch spoke with Jennie Lenman and Ian Newton about the impact that our cashless society has on the way kids understand money, with it’s ability to dissociate consumption and spending.

She also spoke with us about the FBF’s efforts to combat this problem in school. The Suncorp ESSI Money Challenge is a free national financial literacy competition for secondary school students. Teachers across Australia can register their classes for the Suncorp ESSI Money Challenge here.
