Big4.com notes that the Philadelphia campus of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School will host the all-expenses-paid financial literacy conference for 150 educators to be held Sept. 28-30. The seminar will help fill a major education gap by providing a professional-development opportunity for teachers, principals and superintendents to deepen their subject-matter knowledge of several topics. They include stocks and investing, marketing/branding, leadership and entrepreneurship, negotiation, sustainability and career planning.
Big4.com also reports that according to studies from Charles Schwab and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, while 13 states mandate personal-finance coursework as a graduation requirement, 35 percent of teens don’t know how to write a check and fewer than one-in-five teachers feels prepared to teach financial literacy.
