I talked to educators and teachers in Texas about financial literacy

Talking out of school: Educators on financial literacy

I recently had the chance to talk to early childhood educators at the annual conference of the Texas Association for the Education of Young Children (TXAEYC) in Galveston, Texas. One of my favorite parts of an eventful and inspirational evening came after my speech to these educators, when I took off my lavalier mic and got the chance to pick their brains about financial education in the classroom—what challenges they face and what breakthroughs they’ve had, what works, and what takeaways they might have from the event. They had a lot to say—they’re teachers, after all—but here are just a few thoughts that really stuck with me from just a handful of an impressive bunch.
