Financial education should be a mandatory component of the school program.


To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?


In present circumstances, there is a debate that school program should include compulsary financial education or studing should be free. However, free education system, in my opinion, is the best technique in developed society.

Firstly, Free education is the effective way of teaching everyone. In some countries, however, financial education is compulsory, therefore 20 or 30 percent of its population is semi - literate. For example, USA, nowadays 30 or 45 percent of its young generation cannot afford to study in universities or colledges. They think that despite paying huge tution fees, we can find a job and earn money. It is proven if country's education system faces like this kind of problems, developing of the country will decrease. It means this country cannot connect with the world.

Moreover, there’s another factor we need to consider about. In my opinion, the role of financial education is getting more important but the parents are also important and have responsibility to teach their child to learn how to manage the money. More than 70% of young people’s money are come from their parents. In addition, it has to be considered that a student might become money-mind person, talking about money all the time in class or even in a public place. It can be harmful for some students and affect their normal social life.

In conclusion, Free eduacation is the best approach for students to get a good lessons and save their money for their future career

Answering the Question

It is always important to spend some time analyzing the question to make sure you fully understand it and answer it correctly.

In this case you appear to have misunderstood it.

The question is asking if you think there should be a subject taught at school about Finance.

The assumption for this is then that students will be better prepared for their future life as this aspect is so important these days.

However, it appears that you thought the question was asking if education itself should be free or should be paid for.

It looks from your first body paragraph that you have misunderstood the question, but from your second body paragraph it looks like you do seem to be answering. So it is a bit mixed up.

It will affect your score badly though if you do not answer the question, so you must analyze it carefully and make sure all of your body paragraphs focus on answering the question.

There is no doubt that the knowledge of finance is crucial for every human being, from young to adult and personal to professional purpose, since all are bounded by day-to-day financial aspects. The financial education has been the major topic in the higher level courses; however this essay analyses the effects of the course in the primary level.

The acquaintance of the time value of money and its predictions over a present, past and future is the fundamental needs for everyone, as sooner or later every career maker would be undergoing through it. And, it is no more a secret that even the adults are still fully unconfident when they need to decide for their financial step-over, which may be due to lack of sound knowledge or insecurity of the financial terms and aspects. This could be strengthened if the education would start from the primary level and build the strong foundation for the monetary movements.

However, the courses in the school are already in tight stage, where young individual have to carry
additional burden with the financial aspects. Besides, the financial terminologies and concepts are not easier to understand for the fresh ones. Moreover, the teaching to the immature could bring the state of self-concentration and egoism, where young ones would only understand the service in terms of profit making perspective.

In conclusion, i think that the basic knowledge of the finance is essential, but keeping in mind the loads added by the course, it should be balanced and mixed with some other courses. The introduction of finance at school would produce solid foundation for every individual which in turn results to the dominant understanding in the business transactions.
