I have the honor of serving on the Working Committee (Money As You Learn) for the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability. The project provides optional resources that integrate important personal finance concepts into mathematics and English language arts classes. It is up to the classroom teachers to determine what text(s) from our list is best for their students, and I believe the classroom teacher is clearly the best positioned professional to make that determination.
Here is the first paragraph about Money As You Learn from the report on page 26.
"The President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability calls for a new initiative – Money as You Learn -- to integrate important aspects personal finance into English language arts and mathematics teaching as well as into other classes and afterschool programs, in order to reach more students throughout their schooling. This approach can strengthen learning of those subjects as well as expose all students to knowledge and skills they need to become financially capable young adults. At the same time, the Council continues to urge states and school districts to also provide high quality personal finance classes for their students."
The particular information pertaining to the integration of personal finance concepts into English language arts and mathematics classes is on pages 13, and 26-31.
