To the editor:
In one session of a six-part series on financial literacy, recently the High School of Economics and Finance hosted several financial planners to speak to its students about charitable giving.
As these ninth-graders approach independence and beyond, the skills that they learn today will be pertinent forever, and will enrich their financial literacy and their children’s financial literacy.
They learned in this part of the series about the different ways someone can give charity, and how it may benefit their own financial state. In addition, by allowing for these students to become so literate in their own financial well-being at such a young age, it may pique their interests and spur them to learn outside the classroom about more complex financial topics that will help them forever.
As these high school freshmen embark on their journey into the world, they can do so as financially independent members of society.
