(WFLA) – Students in North Carolina will soon be required to take finance classes in order to graduate, WLOS reports.
According to North Carolina’s Education Board, freshman students will begin taking the courses next school year.
The courses will be part of their social studies curriculum. Students will still be required to take four social studies courses, but American history.
“They’re combining the U.S. history curriculum. We’ve done it that way in the past. So, it won’t be a major change for us,” Pisgah High School teacher Tiffany Turner said.
The classes will teach students how to write checks, get a mortgage and earn good credit, Turner said.
Students will take a personal finance class during their senior year.
