Summer of Money Shines
School's out and Ohio credit unions are declaring "The Summer of Money" and have stepped up their commitment to financial literacy by inviting consumers to the newly updated Web site, www.MoneyandStuff.info.
The free educational Web site is designed to provide parents and educators with interactive lesson plans, games, reading material and tips. The curriculum on the site is broken down by age group and topics range from budgeting, saving and managing debt to distinguishing wants from needs.
According to a survey of Ohio adults commissioned by the Ohio Credit Union League, only 23% of Ohioans make any effort to encourage financial literacy in their families. And only 5% were taught about personal finance when they were young.
