Description For several years now, financial literacy has been considered part of the competencies that are developed through financial education, implemented in framework educational programmes at all levels of the education system. Financial literacy contributes to the economic development of society and enables the prevention of potential individual economic problems. In addition, its anchoring is amplified by the formulation in relatively separate strategic documents. This can be understood as a broadly open opportunity to implement financial education in individual schools according to their possibilities, but at the same time it opens space for discussion of the fulfilment of goals in achieving financial literacy standards by pupils. Controversy can be noted between experts, individual schools, and teachers themselves. As part of the analysis of the situation in the field of financial education at primary schools, we conducted a survey at 28 primary schools in Brno, supplemented by 11 semi-structured interviews at 8 schools. The survey focused on the approach of schools and teachers themselves to the inclusion of financial literacy in teaching. This survey confirms that teachers’ views and approaches vary from school to school. There is no consensus on whether financial literacy should be taught as a separate subject or as part of several subjects, whether financial education is given appropriate time, or the results of pupils achieved are sufficient. Thus, it can be stated that in financial education as a part of formal education in primary schools, the principals and teachers at individual primary schools play a really important role, and that they are responsible for including financial literacy in school curricula and for concrete implementation of financial education in practice.
