Half of Americans are ‘C’ students at best when it comes to understanding finances

(BPT) - When it comes to education, we instinctively understand the link between performance and opportunity — a college graduate is likely to have more job opportunities than someone who didn't finish high school. Similarly, the high school valedictorian may be courted by more colleges and universities than a poorly performing student. In fact, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that higher levels of literacy and more advanced education tend to correlate to positive outcomes in wage growth and job opportunities. Because we know the importance of education, we push ourselves and our children to learn and grow, in the hopes of better opportunities in the future.
