NGPF Best of 2022: Questions of the Day

There's no better way to engage students than with a Question of the Day that sparks their curiosity and can get the conversation started for the day's lesson. Each day during the school year, the NGPF QoD team (Mason, Ryan and Tim) scours the web looking for that ultimate bell ringer. Thanks to all the educators who also feed new ideas for questions. Without further ado, the top 10 Questions of the Day for 2022:

  1. How much can a creator on TikTok make if their video receives 1 million views?
  2. Over the past 100 years, the surest sign of an oncoming financial crisis has been what MLB baseball team winning the World Series?
  3. Over a recent 20 year period, what percent of professionals investing in large companies "beat the market?"
  4. How much does an average overnight hospital stay cost?
  5. What percent of high school students have considered vocational/trade schools?
  6. What is the average amount of student debt for college graduates?
  7. What percentage of gig-workers say they're living comfortably?
  8. What are the top 3 categories that Gen Z spends its money on?
  9. How much money does the average person spend on video games and accessories?
  10. Question of the Day: What percent of people age 65-74 are still working?


The Question of the Day library continues to expand and now has 700 questions and growing!

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.
