"Knowing what you know now, would you have done anything differently when the students were in front of you?"

There are numerous social media pages teachers are flocking to for support. The biggest question is that of student attendance, and there are 6 reasons why students may not be attending class.

We are pleased to announce the launch of Vision 2020: The Nation's Report Card. This brand-new initiative takes a thorough look at the financial illiteracy epidemic plaguing America.

For Vision 2020, we graded each state in the United States, and the District of Columbia, in terms of K-12 financial education. These grades are based on current state-wide requirements, standards, and curriculum for personal finance.

We invite you to explore this important project as we put a spotlight on financial education in the classroom!
