Promoting Financial Literacy in Washington State Students

Financial literacy is a key concern for parents, teachers and businesses across the country. A nationwide report of all states, shows the Washington has earned an ‘F’ grade for how students are prepared in this area. The WSPTA is concerned about this issue, and to start, we want to provide our members with a tool to help their children, so we are collaborating with the company, myjobchart, is the free, easy to use, online work and reward system designed to organize families and motivate kids to be responsible. The company combines the latest technology with sound finance principles – the result is an engaging platform that tracks accountability and helps kids learn how to earn, save, share and spend money wisely.
