Govʼt to make finance, economics obligatory subjects
The Hungarian government anticipates making basic financial and economics studies obligatory subjects for all secondary school students as of 2016, in order to develop financial culture in Hungary, deputy state secretary Áron Márk Lenner said at a conference yesterday.
A new generation of Hungarians with financial know-how must be raised, he added. Already, 35% of Hungarian schools are teaching basic finance and economics as a mandatory or elective class, and 9% of schools plan such classes, the secretary noted.
