Personal Financial Literacy Education in MA

An update from the Office of Economic Empowerment:


Last week, the State Treasurer’s Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) published a report detailing where personal financial literacy (PFL) education is – and isn’t – provided in the Massachusetts public school system.


Due to shortages in funding, learning time, and staff, students in Massachusetts often do not have the opportunity to learn how to manage their finances as they enter adulthood. Read the report to learn more about what financial education is offered in schools, the barriers educators face in providing these classes, and how we can overcome them.


You will also find a recording of our report briefing held last week in which OEE staff and Treasurer Goldberg discussed the most important findings revealed in our report.
