I always have my ear to the ground about creative ways that teachers are engaging students in the study of personal finance. Thanks to Joel Chrisler of Sauk Prairie High School in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin for coming on the podcast to discuss the engaging program he built in his community. His program sends high school students into the neighboring elementary schools to teach them core financial concepts including needs and wants, making choices and saving. Joel makes an impassioned case for the value derived by all involved; the high school students, the elementary school students and the overall community. You will hear Joel answer such questions as: . What motivated him to start his peer-to-peer program? . What are the key lessons he wants to impart to young people through this program? . How does it measure the success of the program? . Why should other teachers consider starting a program like this? Enjoy!
