Risk management to be taught at high schools

by |

It may not be the most conventional of subjects that teenagers expect to study, but risk management has been added to the curriculum of certain high schools. Here’s why.

The decision makers in Clayton County, in the US state of Georgia, have decided that risk management is one of the key skills that will help its youngsters secure employment after graduation.

The Insurance and Risk Management course is part of a selection of career-focused courses including Legal Environment of Business, Entrepreneurial Ventures, Financial Literacy and International Business and Marketing.

The added courses will help students become more marketable and better prepared for post-secondary success,” Clayton County’s coordinator of career, technical and agricultural education Eboni Chillis told Clayton News Daily.

“These courses offer rigor, relevance and preparation for our students to be globally competitive and ready for college and career.”
