Mississippi Paper Editorializes in Support of Financial Literacy Requirement

The Dispatch recently wrote an editorial in support of a program at Mississippi State to educate college students about debt.  Included in the editorial is strong support for a statewide program that educates students even younger.
While this move by the university is undoubtedly a good one, financial literacy is something that should start earlier. Unfortunately parents aren't always in a position to pass on money management skills. We hope area high schools will take note and help equip students to make sound financial decisions before taking on student debt.
