A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-2-7c, relating to prescribing personal finance instruction in secondary schools by the State Board of Education.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-2-7c, to read as follows:

The Legislature finds and declares that persons with an understanding of personal finance are better prepared to manage their money and that providing a personal finance program in secondary schools in West Virginia will prepare students to handle their finances. To provide students a basic understanding of personal finance, the State Board shall prescribe instruction on personal finance to be integrated into the curriculum of an appropriate existing course or courses for all students in secondary schools.


NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to prescribe instruction on personal finance in secondary schools by the State Board of Education.
