CEE continues to explain the compelling need for better economics education at the very highest levels of government and commerce, building support for our programs. Last week, the organization convened Advancing Financial Education in New York City at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, featuring Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education, and John W. Rogers, Chair of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans, together with NYC leaders in economic and financial education and other members of the President’s Council.

Here are some of the highlights:

In his opening remarks, Secretary Duncan gave a special “thank you” to the “great teachers” of New York City and around the nation for their work.

We at CEE were thrilled to announce our partnership with Working In Support of Education (W!SE) alongside their President and CEO, Phyllis Frankfort. Students completing missions on our free online personal finance game, Geni Revolution, can now earn a credential by passing the W!SE Financial Literacy Certification exam.

Our discussion centered on the need to scale existing successful programs, and the critical role of private-public partnerships in accomplishing that goal. Contributing to the conversation were Julie Menin, the Commissioner of the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, who spoke about how NYC is providing financial empowerment to schools and parents, and NYC public school teacher Ruben Rivera, who spoke first-hand of the importance of teaching these essential “life skills.”
