Selected high schools in Australia will test MoneySmart, a financial-literacy curriculum developed by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. A similar programme already is in place in the country's primary schools. Under the secondary-school programme, students are expected to learn about "invisible money," and study practical applications, such as comparing mobile-phone contracts and considering whether it makes sense to buy bottled water.
