During the 2016/2017 school year, a professional research firm will evaluate HSFPP's impact and processes. The study will analyze how the program is implemented and examine changes in teen behavior, knowledge, and attitudes related to personal finance as a result of participating in the HSFPP. 

In preparation for the study, NEFE is now seeking instructors who are willing and able to participate in the portion of the study that involves classroom observations and interviews.
