Population by Grades and State Percentages

Percent of Public High School Population by Grades

States that have a personal finance instruction graduation requirement that is estimated at 15 or more hours of instruction are clearly making this type of instruction an important part of their students’ education. Only 20% of states meet this standard, but the good news is that this rigorous standard exists in some fairly large states, meaning that approximately 37% of the public high school student population must meet the standard.
