CU System
Missouri foundation helps teachers provide fin ed
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (1/28/11)--Missouri teachers will be able to more easily access personal finance resources and materials for students online, thanks to a grant from the Missouri Credit Union Charitable Foundation (MCUCF). The $5,000 grant will help the Missouri Council on Economic Education (MCEE) convert its resource library electronically. "Improving consumers' personal finance is a primary philosophy of Missouri credit unions," said Mike Beall, Missouri Credit Union Association president/CEO. Beall, who also serves on the MCEE Board of Trustees, noted that the grant will "help cultivate knowledgeable, young consumers." MCEE is a non-profit organization that provides teachers with personal finance resources and materials for classroom use. The new online system will offer teachers an updated curriculum guide, recommended lessons for tracking competency, customizable charts and graphs, and more. The system is expected to be operational by July, and will be revealed at the Missouri Association for Career and Technical Education summer conference in Springfield. MCUCF is funded with contributions from Missouri credit unions.
