Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance hits major milestone
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance is making a major impact on financial literacy. Having been taught in one in three high schools across the country, the curriculum has prepared more than 3 million students for a lifetime of sound financial decisions by teaching the value of saving, spending and giving.
“These students are the next generation of leaders, decision-makers and givers,” said Ramsey. “Our curriculum teaches teens how to handle money wisely. By teaching them the dangers of debt at an early age — whether it’s student loans or credit cards — we can give them the tools necessary to begin practicing wise money management before they get into trouble.”
Foundations in Personal Finance is a turnkey curriculum that meets standards and benchmarks in all 50 states as well as all national standards for financial literacy. The 12-chapter interactive curriculum includes video lessons taught by Ramsey and his team of experts, more than 100 activities, a blended learning site and a TestGen® computerized test bank. It is available in a traditional print version and also in a digital format. A fully digital version will be available soon and will include bonus modules on global economics and entrepreneurship.
Foundations in Personal Finance can be used as a primary or supplemental resource to fulfill requirements in mathematics, economics, family consumer science, business mathematics and personal finance. Ramsey Solutions also offers curricula for middle schools and college-level programs.
