• Traditionally, K-12 education has focused on core subjects like math, science, history, and language. Finance and accounting, while important, have not be been considered essential for younger students.
  • School curriculums have limited time and resources, which means that certain subjects must be prioritized, especially those subjects that align with standardized testing requirements.
  • Many K-12 educators may not have the necessary background or training to teach accounting, finance, and investment theory.
  • While there is a growing recognition of the importance of financial education for young people, there still remains a large gap in the traditional school curriculums.
  • The purpose of the program is not specifically targeted to only those with an interest in pursuing Wall Street careers. The knowledge and analytical skills learned are essential for anyone interested in entrepreneurship, business management, or being a successful steward of one’s own capital.
