Should Students Get Credit Counseling?

It is a sad but true reality: we do not do a good job of educating students about money, debt and credit.  We teach them how to spend, but we don’t teach them how to use credit wisely.
For that reason, credit counseling, particularly learning to budget, is a great skill for students to learn.  In fact, many non profit credit counseling organizations run seminars for students at local high schools, colleges and universities to help them learn how to budget.
If you have a student in your family, encourage them to learn money management skills while they are still young!
