Nex Gen Personal Finance (NGPF) Recognizes 1,584 Gold Standard Schools For Guaranteeing All Students A Standalone Personal Finance Course

There are 1,584 schools that inspire us because their teachers, parents, and community members have put in the work to guarantee ALL their students are getting those benefits RIGHT NOW. How? According to their course catalogs, they ensure ALL their students take at least one semester of personal finance before graduation. They’re turning “the one course I wish I had in high school” to “the course I’m glad I had in high school,” and we couldn’t be prouder to recognize them today.

Congratulations to the NGPF Gold Standard Schools from New Mexico!
