Clearinghouse

A goal of the National Jump$tart Coalition is to identify high-quality personal finance materials for educational use. The Clearinghouse is a database of personal finance resources available from a variety of education providers such as government, business and non-profit organizations. The Clearinghouse provides brief descriptions of more than 600 titles which can be ordered directly from the author or publisher. Nearly 250 resources are offered absolutely free. A growing number of resources can be downloaded instantly from the web. Others are interactive websites where students can learn from simulations of real-life experiences such as designing a college student budget or investing in financial markets. Teachers often use these personal finance teaching materials to support their state's standards in economics, business, math and family and consumer science.
