Financial Literacy For Students

This is probably the most overlooked area of education when we consider that most students have access to a mobile phone account or credit card before leaving high school without any real understanding of the value of money and earning it. 

Luckily there are a few resources aimed at students and teachers that aim to arm stuednts with some understanding of the value and responsility associated with money that can be accessed here.

and I would love to hear of any other resources if you have any.
