CEE at the DNC: Solutions to improve financial literacy in our schools

POSTED: September 4, 2012 | BY: admin | TAGS: , , ,

It was full speed ahead to the Democratic National Convention, despite the cancellation of CEE’s policy luncheon at the Republican National Convention, where an esteemed panel of leaders in financial literacy gathered in the spirit of the upcoming election to discuss personal finance education.

Today’s speakers included: June Atkinson, Superintendent of Public Instruction, North Carolina Department of Public Instruction; Rodrick Banks, Wells Fargo; Pamela Everhart, Fidelity Investments; Roger Ferguson, President & CEO, TIAA-CREF; Nicole Lipp, Teacher, Garinger High School, Charlotte, NC; John W. Rogers, Jr., Chairman & CEO, Ariel Investments; and Senator Josh Stein, North Carolina General Assembly.

North Carolina Senator Josh Stein called financial literacy a ‘social justice issue,’ and the panel speakers discussed the importance of personal finance in our nation’s schools.

  • Excellent!! Financial literacy and asset building MUST be part of the conversation at a national level. See our invitation to the President posted as a Youtube video. With savings accounts in youth’s name producing a 7X advantage in creating college students, see how we are using asset building and financial literacy to create a college-going culture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC2HrPnJppE&feature=g-user-u
