MORE THAN 1.5 MILLION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GET FINANCIAL EDUCATION THROUGH DAVE RAMSEY’S FOUNDATIONS IN PERSONAL FINANCE COURSE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — More than 1.5 million high school students have used Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum 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.
“With Foundations in Personal Finance, I’m confident in my student’s financial futures,” said Alex Todd, Business teacher at Elizabethtown High School in Elizabethtown, Ky. “They will leave here knowing more than most adults do about insurance, saving for retirement and emergency funds. Dave Ramsey really brings these subjects to life and makes it really entertaining for the students and me.”
The recently updated Foundations in Personal Finance features 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 proud to be a part of changing students’ lives through our curriculum,” said Jim King, Vice President of Education Solutions. “We are passionate about financial education and want to continue impacting students and teachers across the country.”
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.
