Almost everyone in America can agree on one thing: schools should be teaching kids about money. Some 87 percent of respondents in a new survey from RBC Wealth Management-U.S. and City National Bank said schools ought to be teaching students about money management. 'Of these respondents, 15 percent believe that it should be included [in class curriculum] as early as elementary school and the rest believe it should be more of a middle school and high school topic,' said Brooke McGeehan, U.S. vice president at RBC Wealth Management. 'Personally, I think there's no downside in starting as early as possible.' Most states don't require students to take a personal finance class upon high school graduation. Amid the lack of financial education in schools, parents seemed to have filled in the gap. TheStreet's Scott Gamm reports from Wall Street.
