MORE THAN ONE MILLION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GET FINANCIAL EDUCATION THROUGH DAVE RAMSEY’S FOUNDATIONS IN PERSONAL FINANCE COURSE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — More than one million high school students have taken Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance course nationwide. Ramsey offers Foundations in Personal Finance for high school students to learn more about how to better manage their finances and build wealth so they can have a solid financial future.
“I love this curriculum,” said Dr. Carrie DeZutter, teacher at Riverview High School in Sarasota, Fla. “The program catches and holds the attention of our young people through real-life connections. Our students love the fact that the information is relevant to their lives, and they may apply the concepts immediately. An added bonus for us was the feedback we received from parents—their children were continuing financial discussions at home and shared what they were learning.”
Foundations in Personal Finance has been updated for the spring 2014 semester with all new material, statistics and case studies. Using the same concepts that are found in his books Financial Peace Revisited and The Total Money Makeover, Ramsey tailors the lessons to students by using fun, easy to understand methods. The class is taught on DVD by Ramsey and his daughter, Rachel Cruze. Updated student workbooks, a new teacher’s guide and a blended learning site will help teachers and students work through the course in an easy to use, interactive way. The updated curriculum also features four new chapters on going to college debt-free, careers, giving, and a history of personal finance.
“We are so proud that our curriculum has already helped change the lives of more than a million students,” said Jim King, Vice President of Education Solutions. “We are passionate about helping students, and even teachers, learn more about personal finance and are looking forward to being able to help even more through our new curriculum and new learning initiatives.”
Foundations in Personal Finance is a turnkey curriculum that meets standards and benchmarks in all fifty states and Jump$tart national standards. It is also available in an eText format for tablets and desktops, and as a full online option with Learning Management System integration.
Pre-orders of the course are currently being taken for the spring 2014 semester. For more information, go to www.daveramsey.com or call 800-781-8914 to speak with an advisor.
