The Personal Financial Literacy of Fourth Grade Students.
Lucey, Thomas Andrew
The purpose of the study was to measure personal financial literacy levels of fourth grade students in Memphis, Tennessee and to explore the relationships between seven personal and social characteristics and the students' personal financial literacy. The sample produced low scores on five measure dimensions. Caucasian populations performed better than African American; high-income students performed better than low income students; and students with high-self esteem scored better on personal financial application items than students with low self-esteem. Findings indicate that further research is needed into the influences of personal financial literacy on children of different cultures. (Contains 103 references.) (Author/YDS)
