(a) It is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to establish educational requirements in order to instill in California's youth a sense of importance about lifelong financial planning and preparation, including, among other things, the costs of health care, in a much-extended later life.
(b) Educational institutions have developed a model curriculum in lifelong healthy aging and financial preparedness, with materials, free of charge, for the Superintendent of Public Instruction to disseminate to school teachers at the local level.
(c) The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall make this existing curriculum available to teachers, using materials that are currently available at no cost, with information and links provided through the Internet, in order to provide to students in grades 7 to 12, inclusive, instruction on human growth, human development, and financial preparedness.
