To kick off Financial Literacy Month we’re reflecting on the good that is happening in financial education. For instance, a recent survey found that nearly 9 out of 10 parents report talking to their kids about personal finance! That’s an 18% increase since 2003.
Teachers know that while parental education is an important piece, school-based lessons are critical to filling the gaps. Whether your students are mini-moguls or not, there’s always more they can learn about money. Here are two resources teachers can use in their classrooms this April:
Vault – Understanding Money™ (Elem/Middle) – Topics include needs vs. wants, responsible money choices, impulse buying, career planning
EVERFI – Financial Literacy™
(High School) – Topics include banking, saving, credit scores, taxes, insurance, FAFSA, consumer protection
