Bringing personal finance into Massachusetts classrooms is something we can all get behind. Raising financially literate youth not only helps close income gaps, but it also strengthens our communities and builds a brighter future for our state.
Although Massachusetts is one of only five states in the country that doesn’t require personal finance education, there are a dedicated corps of teachers who are taking the lead in bringing financial literacy to our students, and the Massachusetts Jumpstart Coalition is dedicated to supporting them with access to resources, training and financial support.
Most importantly, we’re part of the national Jumpstart Coalition’s effort to ensure that these financial literacy efforts have the quality and impact they need to make a difference.
Join us to add your voice to those who support these educators’ efforts, and to learn more about our efforts to build a financially literate student body.
Thank you for your support!
