House reworks financial literacy bill and mandates teaching of handshakes

This financial literacy bill was worked in the House Ed committee where problems relating to how students would fit such a course into their schedules, unfunded mandates and other issues led to a compromise to encourage teaching financial literacy. Today some legislators tried to abandon the compromise, and now we have a bill mandating the teaching of a good handshake.

We would really prefer the legislature focus on its job and let the state BOE and districts do theirs. Can we get a solution on school funding, please?
