Tennessee made the grade in a new study measuring all 50 states in their efforts to teach the ABCs of financial literacy to high school students.
The Center for Financial Literacy at Champlain College gave Tennessee an A on its report card for teaching students about finance. Tennessee is just one of seven states that received the top grade.
Other southeast states on the list included Georgia and Virginia. Kentucky got a C.
