Thanks to John Pelletier who joined me recently on the NGPF Podcast show to discuss national trends in personal finance education and a solution to the professional development needs of high school instructors. Embarking on a second career with a mission to improve the financial literacy of young adults in Vermont, John has had a tremendous impact on creating a national dialogue on what the key ingredients of a personal finance program should look like. Among John's many awards, he was recently selected as the 2015 Financial Literacy Champion by the Vermont JumpStart Coalition. Included in this broad-ranging discussion, John shares the "hot off the press" results of his biennial Report Card which evaluates state-level efforts to improve financial literacy in high schools. Enjoy!
