It's April...and I can't imagine having a better guest for Financial Literacy Month than Laura Levine, the President of the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. In our wide-ranging conversation, we discussed Laura's short and long-term goals for Jump$tart, the importance of their teaching training initiative, and how the personal finance landscape has changed over time. Thanks to Laura for sharing her insights on such questions as: . What are the goals for your organization this year and in the future? . What are teachers searching for on the Jump$tart Clearinghouse? What resources are in greatest demand? . What is the philosophy underlying the Jump$tart teacher training initiative? . How has personal finance education changed over time? . How can teachers advocate at their schools to make finance education a requirement?
