Superintendent Torlakson believes that young people need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge that allow them to be savvy consumers and competent managers of their own finances. To that end, he is launching a financial literacy awareness campaign. The goal of this initiative is to provide schools, teachers, students and parents with access to supplemental resources that can help students develop a keen understanding of responsible money management and increase their overall financial literacy. The California Department of Education is partnering with financial institutions, consumer groups, and other government agencies in this effort.
