Schools To Test Financial Fluency Program

Print More

State Treasurer Beth Pearce says four Vermont schools are testing a new financial fluency program aimed at helping teachers find new ways of introducing personal finance concepts to young people.

Teachers at Bellows Falls Union High, St. Albans City School, Twinfield Union High School and U-32 High School started last month on the six-lesson curriculum. The curriculum teaches financial concepts with a math-based curriculum, touching on budgeting, credit card interest and other personal finance topics.

More than a dozen schools in New England are participating in the project, which is a joint effort by non-profit Valmo Villages and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
