Tools to advocate for financial literacy

I often hear fellow educators discuss how we can advocate for requirements in personal finance instruction and coursework. A matter of fact, this NEFE study found that 89 percent of teachers agree or strongly agree that students should take a financial literacy course or pass a test for high school graduation.

I am honored to be a member of the Council for Economic Education GATE Teacher Advisory Board. In yesterday's meeting I was informed of their dedicated tool-kit and area on their website that provides educators with the tools they need to be legislative advocates.

  1. Thanks for sharing this information Brian. I hope that it will be of use to all interested in making sure that children around the country are provided with high quality economic and financial education in the classroom. We at CEE are happy to help anyone interested in working to develop and implement course requirements.
