How Teacher Educators Can Address Our Nation's Financial Crisis
Dowdell, John; McElfresh, Dwight; Sikula, John
SRATE Journal, v18 n1 p1-6 Win 2008-2009
This article from Ashland University reports on what one university, well known for its Teacher Education programs, is doing in an economically depressed state to address our country's financial crisis. Ohio has mandated that financial literacy be taught in high schools by 2010. Reported herein is what is being done to prepare teachers for this responsibility. Support for this effort comes from nine university-based Economic Centers, the Treasurer of the State, and from several foundations and community agencies. The role of the school is being expanded to include instruction in financial management, in hopes of reversing some very negative trends.
