Take a Bow, New Jersey

The first bill signed into law in New Jersey this year puts in place a new requirement for financial literacy in middle school.  It's great progress.

Here are the details:
The new law gives school districts until the start of the 2019-2020 school year to begin administering the financial-literacy lessons. The law empowers the state Board of Education to enforce the new requirement, and calls on the education commissioner to provide districts with sample instructional materials and other resources to help them meet the new teaching requirement.
