Advancing K-12 financial education: A guide for policymakers
Integrating financial education throughout the K-12 experience represents a promising opportunity to reach consumers at a pivotal point in their development and their financial lives.
This resource guide is meant to help connect policymakers with tools, information, and insights to enhance K-12 financial education efforts. While the guide is targeted at policymakers, the guide was designed to benefit all members of the financial education community. The guide’s framework for advancing K-12 financial education has three main sections: laying the groundwork, building the initiative and extending the impact.
Each section contains guiding questions for policymakers to consider, case studies, and a resource directory with additional information. While each circumstance is unique and may require different approaches, policymakers can use the guide as a resource to identify the best approach for their community.
