Meeting with reporters at the Warsaw Stock Exchange building in the Polish capital, Przemysław Czarnek said school students in his country received a total of 60 classes on economic and financial topics over 12 years of primary and secondary education, the state PAP news agency reported. 

“This means just two full days in 12 years -  it’s nowhere near enough,” he told the news conference.

He added that some progress had been made in recent years, with the "fundamentals of economics now being taught" in schools. 

“Indeed this course is benefiting our pupils, our youth, preparing them for adult life, for making financial decisions, for effectively managing a household, but also for managing the companies they are setting up,” Czarnek said.

He insisted there was still not enough emphasis on practical aspects of business and management. 

“And so starting from September 1, 2023, we want to replace the subject called 'the basics of entrepreneurship' with an entirely new course in business and management,” Czarnek announced. 

He told reporters that the new course would “contain everything a young person needs in order to get to know the world of finance, the world of management, and to be able to make rational, reasonable financial decisions right from the start.”

Students will be encouraged to consider establishing their own companies in adult life, Czarnek said. 

He cited data according to which only 30 percent of the world’s population had a grasp of the basic concepts in finance and business. 

“We want this proportion in Poland to be well above the global average,” he declared.
