A Wisconsin student named Chase Yells has been advocating for a financial literacy bill, which was recently signed into law by Governor Tony Evers. The bill, known as AB109, mandates that high schools in the state teach at least one semester of financial literacy to every student, starting with the 2028 graduating class. Wisconsin is now the 24th state to require a half-credit financial literacy course for graduation. Yells, a senior at West De Pere High School, has a 4.2 GPA and a passion for math and economics. He wanted to help other high school students with their financial education and joined a coalition to push for the legislation. Yells believes that teaching financial literacy in schools will have a positive impact on students and society as a whole. He feels proud to be part of an effort that will impact millions of students.
