Bill Requiring High School Financial Literacy Classes Awaits Governor’s Signature

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – So much of the adult population is living paycheck-to-paycheck.

So it’s hoped that financial literacy classes expected to be taught soon in Ohio’s schools will be helpful.

Senate Bill 1 which is sitting on the governor’s desk requires that the freshman class of the ’22-’23 school year be the first to take a half-credit in financial literacy before graduating.

Tacked onto the bill is a fix for finding substitute teachers.

It continues a pandemic-begun loosening of the requirement for a four-year degree.
