Financial education prepares high school students to make better decisions

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. – Stuart Rohatiner organized a team of personal finance experts to help dozens of college students in Miami-Dade County prepare for their futures with knowledge about creating a budget, managing a portfolio, and investing in the stock market.

Rohatiner, partner at Gerson Preston Robinson & Company, is a lawyer and chartered accountant with over 25 years of experience. He advises international and domestic companies, entrepreneurs and investors.

Rohatiner’s recent tip when he met Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Sr. High in North Miami was: “Try to put 10% or 15% of your money in savings, be it 401(k), maybe another 5% or 10% to invest in savings yourself, so you have access to that and you have a clear plan.”

Rocio Sosa (17) said she found the lesson with Rohatiner very useful. She dreams of becoming an archaeologist and her best choice is Cornell University. To get there, she said she’s going to make transfers from a checking account to a savings account so she can start accruing interest.

“I need to start applying and start saving,” said Sosa, adding, “I found it very informative. I mean, I’ve never really been interested in finance, but then I realize how important it is for the future. ”

Rohatiner also cited a 2018 study by the U.S. Financial Literacy and Education Commission, which found that only a third of U.S. adults could answer most questions about fundamental financial concepts.

“It’s not a good thing, of course,” said Rohatiner.

Rohatiner said he is working on a letter asking the legislature to make financial education a mandatory part of the curriculum of all high schools in Florida. Black and Hispanic adults generally have low financial literacy scores and he said he wants to change that through education.
