Survey of the States: Building Support for
K-12 Financial Education in Mass.
Across the country, there has been little progress in personal finance education in recent years and little improvement in economic education. This shocking data is from the recently released, Survey of the States .

The Council for Economic Education (CEE) conducts a comprehensive look into the state of K-12 economic and financial education in the United States every two years. The survey serves as an important benchmark for our progress, revealing both how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go especially in our own state.

How are we responding in Massachusetts? MassSaves is building awareness and support for legislation that ensures every student has the tools and knowledge to thrive.

MassSaves is actively advocating for an Act Relative to Financial Literacy in Schools (S.249) that will invest and equip our next generation, ensuring a stronger Massachusetts for all. The bill was recently released favorably from committee but to get it passed, we need your help.
