CEE is excited to announce the premiere of “Spotlight On: Financial Literacy” airing on PBS beginning this week. “Spotlight On: Financial Literacy” is a special segment we created to shine a light on the importance of financial literacy education. This 5-minute segment features the new National Standards for Financial Literacy, a framework for K-12 educators to teach financial literacy in the classroom.
The PBS segment emphasizes that financial literacy is about more than learning how to save, invest, or apply for a credit card—it also involves acquiring a set of skills that help students make informed decisions in the context of our ever-changing world. This is why CEE’s new National Standards were created, to empower students to avoid poor financial choices, understand economic reasoning behind their choices and better understand their decisions.
“Spotlight On: Financial Literacy” was made possible through funding provided by 1st Financial Bank USA. It’s currently airing nationwide on PBS—watch for it on your local stations!
