Congratulations Michigan

The Associated Press reports that Michigan has passed legislation that would allow students to fulfill a graduation requirement by taking a financial literacy course.

Key point:
Students now must pass a half-credit economics requirement to graduate. The legislation approved unanimously by the Senate Thursday would let the credit requirement be satisfied by completion of a personal economics class that includes a financial literacy component.
As the 2016 state legislative sessions approach in states across the country, let's hope more states follow Michigan's lead.
