New National Standards for Personal Financial Education
CEE and Jump$tart have joined forces to issue a unified set of national standards identifying knowledge, skills and decision-making abilities that all young people should acquire for their lives as smart consumers.
The new National Standards for Personal Financial Education create benchmarks for concepts and principles instead of a focus on products, rules or conventional learning, which are subject to continual change. The standards are organized around six topic areas: earning income; spending; saving; investing; managing credit; and managing risk.
