FIRST CHOICE EMERGENCY ROOM SPONSORS FINANCIAL EDUCATION FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN HOUSTON
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – First Choice Emergency Room is sponsoring Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum at several schools in the Houston area. Foundations in Personal Finance is the premier curriculum for teaching financial literacy to students using interactive learning.
Ramsey developed Foundations in Personal Finance to teach students sound financial principles so they can avoid financial difficulties as they become adults. The lessons are taught in an entertaining, passionate, and easy-to-understand style to help students learn the financial lessons their parents have learned the hard way. Each interactive lesson is taught by Ramsey through age-specific questions. The curriculum is aligned with Texas’ state standards with an emphasis on 21st Century Learning Skills like critical thinking, analyzing information, problem solving, and applying knowledge to new situations. Foundations in Personal Finance is being taught in more than 10,000 schools and educational institutions nationwide.
“First Choice Emergency Room is dedicated to the communities we serve,” said Thomas S. Hall, President and CEO of First Choice Emergency Room. “We are pleased to be supporting an initiative like Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum that teaches financial principals to youth at our neighborhood schools.”
