(KRQE) – Albuquerque Public Schools will make an interactive financial literacy course available to high school students.

The course will teach students how to make smart real-world financial choices and students can see the consequences of bad decisions through a simulation. “It gives them the ability to practice having a job, having emergencies, having a life happen,” said Ron Moorehead, CEO of First Financial Credit Union. The bank contributed $643,500 to cover the cost of the interactive course for three years.

The APS Career Connected Learning department is working with Stukent Software to provide the course. Earlier this year, state lawmakers and Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham enacted a law mandating financial literacy education for all high school students.
