  • Mississippi ranked among top states for personal finance education

    Gov. Tate Reeves has commented on a report that says Mississippi is one of only seven states across the nation to achieve an “A” grade for personal finance education. Mississippi was also one of only 12 states that improved their score since the release of the last report in 2017. During that time period, the state rose from a “C” grade in 2017 to its current “A” grade.

    Positive Impact of Financial Literacy

    The report notes that “individuals with higher levels of financial literacy make better personal finance decisions.” Additionally, the report projected that Mississippi would retain its “A” grade going into the future.

    Recognition and Thanks

    “I want to thank everyone across Mississippi who has worked incredibly hard to improve financial literacy standards, including the Mississippi Department of Education, the Mississippi Council on Economic Education, Get2College, and all of our amazing teachers,” said Reeves.
