Through this literature review, the authors explore financial educations' relevance to urban society. They consider research measuring children's financial development by observing environmental influences that affect both financial learning and personal judgments. These conditions necessitate financial curricula addressing associated challenges. The authors recommend a cooperative rather than competitive financial education curriculum. Such a framework would employ student-centered instruction to create awareness of the societal consequences for financially based personal judgments related to financial differences.
