Nov 02, 2016
Flash Surveys, Survey Results

We surveyed many educators to find out their thoughts and opinions about personal finance professional development.

Some key findings from our survey:

  1. 66% of respondents have attended at least one personal finance professional development within the past 12 months
  2. Investing, Retirement/401(k) and Paying for College are the favored content topics for future professional development sessions
  3. Exposure to classroom resources, discussion of new developments and current events are important when creating or delivering an effective professional development session

For those who have participated in at least one personal finance professional development within the past 12 months, 73% of respondents identified that they had attended an out-of-school workshop or conference.



For those people who have not participated in personal finance professional development within the last 12 months, nearly half of respondents identified that one of the reasons was because they were not aware of options for personal finance professional development.
