New HSFPP guides are a hit
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (12/20/07)--The National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) announced that the new revised version of the High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP) has been sent to a record number of schools and organizations. “The buzz from teachers and others has been incredibly positive,” said John Parfrey, director of the NEFE HSFPP. Since April 1, NEFE has sent 745,069 HSFPP student guides. Of those, 393,470 were new student guides. For the same period in 2006, NEFE distributed 455,670 student guides--a gain of 289,399 in 2007. “Those are huge numbers,” Parfrey said. He also noted that he has heard no complaints about the new program. Since the Credit Union National Association partnered with NEFE in 2000, the HSFPP has been revised in 2002 and in 2007. HSFPP is a free resource designed to teach high school students about personal finance.
