quality personal financial education
We believe that we, as a nation, can do better.
FinEd50 is dedicated to improving access to quality financial education for all young people, in every state, school district, and high school and to supporting educators bringing this important subject into their classrooms.
Recognizing that education is the realm of state and local leadership, FinEd50 is committed to affecting change in education policy at the state level. To meet this goal, we are dedicated to achieving:
State-level action that guarantees equitable access for every student to a robust, high-quality personal finance course;
Courses and educational materials that address the content outlined in the National Standards for Personal Financial Education and are culturally relevant and responsive to students’ lived experiences;
Innovative funding mechanisms and professional development tools in place to support and develop a corps of high-quality teachers with access to necessary professional development opportunities to teach personal finance; and
A mechanism for measuring access to courses on personal finance, to ensure equitable reach of state requirements.
Through our coalition, FinEd50 will provide thought leadership, expertise, advocacy, and technical support to achieve these goals. Together we can ensure financial wellness is a key priority within public education and improve the lives of generations to come.
