MCUA teams up with state on fin ed efforts
ST. LOUIS (6/18/09)--The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) teamed up with the Missouri Council on Economic Education and Operation Outreach to help train the state’s educators to teach personal finance to students. During difficult economic times, it’s more important than ever for students to learn the basics of finance--from saving and budgeting to money management, MCUA said. Missouri state law requires that all high school graduates take part in a personal finance course prior to graduating. Local organizations are stepping in to help teachers reach students on financial issues. The Personal Finance Workshop for Teachers took place June 11 in Cape Girardeau, Joplin, Kirksville and Poplar Bluff. About 40 teachers participated. The workshop is designed to help teachers find curricula aligned with Missouri’s requirements, provide guidance on how to incorporate all content in one semester and show how to recognize when students master personal finance concepts. “MCUA has been involved for many years in helping Missouri’s educators obtain the tools that they need to teach young people about financial education,” said Julie Schulte, MCUA education and training director. Schulte and MCUA trainer Andrea Janek addressed teachers about money management, budgeting, spending and saving, and investing.
