Student workshops stress financial skills

January 10, 2009


Two consumer workshops for high school students will be in March by the Kansas Attorney General’s office.

The workshops will be March 3 at Kansas University and on March 6 at Kansas State University. The focus will be on teaching students financial skills they will need to succeed in life. It is the first time the attorney general has conducted the workshops.

“It is important that our children learn the ins and outs of being a smart consumer early,” Attorney General Steve Six said. “Hopefully, these workshops will make students better equipped to make important financial choices, protect their identities and maintain good credit throughout their adult life.”

The workshops will consist of multiple presentations from speakers, including Six. Topics will include the basics of personal finance, contracts, student loan practices, protecting your identity and others.

Registration information has been sent to Kansas high schools. It also can be found online at

Advice from a state that thankfully must balance its budget by law. Students certainly do not need any advice from the financial wizards with the federal government - unless of course they wish to start their own Ponzi scheme!
