State Representative Gene Whisnant is pushing again for more financial literacy to be taught in our schools. The Sunriver resident is in his fourth term; and he says every session he's introduced a Bill to encourage high school civics and financial management. The first two sessions he introduced a Bill to add it as a high school requirement, but the teachers union didn't like it: “That's another important thing to me: civics and financial management. We might not have had the financial crisis we had if more people would've had financial literacy training. “ This session he put another couple of Bills out this time that encourage local school districts to add civics and financial management. The State requires 24 hours to graduate, but local school districts can add more to that. Session gets back underway February 1st.
