Finance should be taught at schools

Teachers believe financial literacy should be compulsory for all school leavers, according to a survey carried out by Visa, a leading payment solutions provider.

An overwhelming number of GCC education professionals polled “believe that basic financial literacy skills are essential for young people today and would like to see the fundamentals of money management taught in schools”.

 Lama Kabbani, corporate communications manager for Visa in the Middle east, said: “Visa believes the most important financial tool is not a product – it is knowledge. That is why, for more than a decade, we have been developing financial literacy programmes that teach individuals how to spend, save and budget responsibly.”

Visa is a global payments technology company that connects consumers, businesses, financial institutions and governments in more than 200 countries and territories to fast, secure and reliable digital currency.
