High School Course Shapes How Students Behave With Money
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The next generation faces an extraordinary task as the pain of the pandemic and economic fallout are felt for years to come. To recover, young people must become financially savvy.
Ramsey Solutions meets this challenge with the latest edition of Foundations in Personal Finance, an easy-to-use, comprehensive high school course that teaches students the benefits of budgeting, the value of saving and the wisdom of investing.
“I tell kids all the time, the choices they make today determine the caliber of their future,” said Anthony ONeal, one of five Ramsey money experts to appear in Foundations’ instruction videos. “If we don’t teach the truth about the toxic money culture, if we don’t educate, motivate and empower kids to succeed, that’s on us.”
After more than twelve years of hearing directly from students and teachers impacted by Foundations in Personal Finance, Ramsey Solutions redesigned the curriculum with new videos and instruction that walk students through real-world scenarios. The lessons are available in print and digital formats with the flexibility for both in-school and virtual learning.
“The stories we get back from teachers are incredibly inspiring,” said Jim King, executive vice president of Ramsey Education. “There is a path for kids to pursue their passions without being weighed down by the burden of debt. Teachers teaching this curriculum are leading the way.”
More than five million students have completed a Foundations in Personal Finance class. The curriculum meets the standards and benchmarks in all 50 states and Jump$tart national standards.
