According to the Jump$tart Coalition, Oklahoma is one of 24 states to adopt financial education requirements for students (Jump$tart Coalition, 2010). The Passport to Financial Literacy Act of 2007, Oklahoma House Bill 1476, requires Oklahoma students in grades 7 through 12 to fulfill established financial literacy requirements to graduate with a standard diploma. The Oklahoma State Department of Education (2009) provided detail on the standards to meet these requirements. Cooperative Extension educators use the "Reality Check" program to help schools address eight instruction areas. This article describes Reality Check, an interactive, hands-on financial educational program, and discusses how it helps teachers meet financial education requirements. (Contains 2 tables.)
