Idaho ranked fifth in NEFE fin-ed saturation
BOISE, Idaho (1/19/10)--Idaho is ranked fifth in the nation for student saturation in the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP). The Idaho Credit Union League has been instrumental is getting the program offered to schools and other state organizations. HSFPP aims to provide high school aged students with personal finance education. The Credit Union National Association and America’s Credit Unions underwrite the costs of the program so it is free. The Idaho league partnered with the University of Idaho Extension Service to offer the program in the state. Idaho’s credit unions sponsored teacher training workshops and sent staff members to participate in training. Many credit unions served as community financial resources to teachers in classrooms. Idaho First Lady Lori Otter also promoted the program to schools, students, parents and community organizations statewide. The curriculum also has been adopted by the Idaho State Corrections Department, high schools, non profit community organizations, such as Life’s Kitchen and Boise Rescue Mission, and several Idaho colleges and universities. In 2009, roughly 7,000 program workbooks were ordered by the state, the league said.
