Teaching Kids Financial Literacy

Mint.com, an online personal finance software service, has teamed up with Scholastic to develop an interactive game and produced classroom materials to help children understand budgeting and financial planning. Students who use the material will learn how to set goals and budgets with real life examples, such as getting a babysitting job to save for a bicycle.

The program is based on responses to the Intuit Town Hall Money Matters Consumer Survey, in which 46 percent of parents responding said that schools should have the most responsibility for teaching kids about financial literacy.
