NGPF FinEd Bill Tracker (as of 2/16/22)

We continued to see additional bills introduced n 2022 to increase access to financial education since our last update. As of February 16th, 20 states have already put forth 40 bills related to personal finance education. In the past three years, the number of states guaranteeing that high school students will complete a one semester course in personal finance has doubled from 5 to 10. 2021 saw Nebraska, Rhode Island and Ohio make that commitment. 

For the complete list of bills introduced in 2022 or carried over from 2021, check out the NGPF FinEd Bill Tracker.

The financial education movement continues to garner a great degree of interest, as evidenced by this recent media:

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
