Mr. Arjun Rao, Principal, Oakridge Bangalore Campus, who is also spearheading the Financial Intelligence classes in his campus, says, "The FI curriculum starts from Grade 6 on wards and will be advancing with more topics and activities for the subsequent classes. For classes 7th, 8th and 9th the curriculum includes the basics. Now, a student of the grade 8th can easily understand how money is distributed in the economy. He can also gather information about inflation and will be able to calculate the educational loan by himself.
