This paper aims to gain an understanding of the effects of financial education on the development of financial literacy among students. The subjects were divided into the experiment group and the control group. The experiment group received 12 classes in financial education, and both groups received a pre-test and a post-test on the financialliterature measurements. The purpose is to explore whether financial education is effective in the development of financialliteracy among seventh grade students. The results showed that the students with financial experience report a stronger financial literacy, which is found in both groups. The correct financing atitude cannot be acquired via the financing behaviour of families or through teaching. The establishment of a proper financing attitude relies on factors other than the background variables. Discussion between students and their parents can improve the students' financing skills. After eliminating the pre-test scores, the results of two-way ANCOVA showed that there are no cross effects between group differences and the parental socio-economic status. The students in the experiment group showed better scores in the post-test than in the pre-test, indicating that financial education can effectively enhance theirfinancial knowledge, attitude and behaviour.
