Large-Scale Studies Reaffirm The Role of Financial Education
Jan. 27, 2022 • Webinar 12pm ETRegister
A growing mountain of research reports from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Global Financial Literacy Center, and other respected organizations have quieted arguments questioning the role of financial education literacy. Bottomline: Good financial education addresses long-term financial skills and behaviors.
How should K-12 and higher education leaders view this weight of data in curriculum development? What do the findings say about the long-term impact of financial education? This webinar discusses the results, and the impact financial education has in shaping young people’s long-term behaviors. Noted researcher Dr. Dan Zapp of EVERFI presents:
- Why the role of financial literacy had come under fire and how the findings refute misconceptions.
- How a new longitudinal research study examines the effect of six financial education courses over four years.
- What educators should expect from financial education in shaping young people’s attitudes, behaviors, and confidence.
