Financial literacy will certainly play a massive part in the home education experience.
You should look at the financial state of the United Kingdom and beyond to see how much debt and poverty families have found themselves in.
It is very easy to blame other factors such as the cost of living, recessions etc.
In many situations, if adults understood cash flow and how to budget their finances then a lot of situations need not arise.
If adults are not financially savvy and schools do not treat financial literacy as a relevant subject then what chance do kids have of staying out of debt once they are fending for themselves in the real world?
Most children who go down the University Road will find themselves starting adulthood in debt courtesy of student loans, not a great start in life!
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad talks about the understanding of cash flow forecasts/financial statements being of more importance than curriculum maths.
It could be argued he has a strong point, despite having different levels of degrees from University, people going on to have highly paid jobs still find themselves trapped financially due to lack of financial literacy.
Children who have a good knowledge of money management will surely have a greater chance of avoiding the debt trap which in many cases can shackle people for most of their life.
Kids learn by doing, therefore we intend to involve them in a lot of hands-on financial activities including board games such as Monopoly and cash flow for kids.
