The National Standards for Personal Financial Education represent the Jump$tart Coalition and Council for Economic Education (CEE)’s shared vision of a single, unified set of standards that will guide educators, curriculum writers, policymakers, and other financial education stakeholders across the country to promote effective, comprehensive financial education for K-12 students.
The new Standards reflect the evolution of financial services, current approaches to financial education, and a more intentional inclusiveness of all users.
Jump$tart and CEE thank the Steering Committee, Writing Team, educator and industry-expert reviewers, and the Jackson Charitable Foundation.
Dr. Vickie Bajtelsmit, who led the Standards Writing Team, discussed development of the new Standards at the Council for Economic Education’s 60th Anniversary Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference and then again at the 2021 Jump$tart National Educator Conference in Washington, DC.
While Jump$tart no longer distributes the National Standards as a printed book, organizations interested in printing their own supply may request a printshop-ready file by contacting our headquarters office.
