Share What You Know!
By adding your school to our database, you do a great favor to everyone who comes along behind you and—most importantly—you help us take that first step toward introducing, improving, or maintaining effective financial education there.
Here’s how it works:
- You complete the (very brief) survey below. If you have teacher contact information handy, it will only take a couple of minutes.
- Simply tell us whether financial education is already being taught. “What if I’m wrong?” No worries! We’re not reporting anything; just trying to get information. Just do the best you can. Remember, we want to know even if there is no financial education at all.
- We’ll contact the teacher (or administrator) whose name you provide—but we won’t give them yours.
- If you tell us that personal finance is already being taught, we’ll offer ways to make sure it’s as effective as possible.
- If you tell us there’s no financial education offered yet, we’ll let them know there’s some community interest (without naming names) and see what we can do to help them get started.
- And if the teacher tells us our information isn’t quite right, that’s OK too. We’ll have made a good contact and the opportunity to add more accurate information to our database.
After you’ve added a school, check out our Advocacy Toolkit for suggestions on how to start the conversation about the importance of financial education. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep track of our progress in coming years. Thanks for your help!
