Clearinghouse

 
Jump$tart’s online Clearinghouse is the nation’s most comprehensive collection of financial education resources suitable for students in pre-kindergarten through college.  All of the resources listing in the Clearinghouse have been reviewed for appropriateness, based on the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education.

The third edition of the National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education was developed by the Jump$tart Coalition with a team of academic experts and 50 content reviewers.  These voluntary standards can be downloaded from the Jump$tart website.

Between 1997 and 2008, Jump$tart’s Biennial Survey of Financial Literacy Among High School Students was arguably the most notable and most often quoted research on the level of financial knowledge among American youth.  The research documented consistently low levels of financial literacy.  In 2008, Jump$tart added a survey of college students and in 2010 launched a comprehensive effort to retool the research efforts and update the survey instrument.

Best Practices
