Hagan wants kids to learn more about handling money

Sen. Kay Hagan has announced a bill to encourage the teaching of financial literacy in the schools.

She has re-introduced the Financial Litearcy for Students Act which would provide incentive grants for states that agree to offer financial literacy education in Title I public elementary and secondary schools.

The bill also encourages teacher training in financial literacy and encourages partnerships with local financial institutions and other organizations.

Hagan made the announcement at a news conference held Friday at Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, which offers a financial literacy course.
