Critical Financial Literacy Inquiry to Action Group

Posted by Teacher Action Group on January 29, 2018

Check out this flyer to learn more about the Critical Financial Literacy and other ItAG (Inquiry to Action) groups.

Our ItAG seeks to reexamine financial literacy programs found in many in school and community programs. Recognizing the racial wealth gap in the US, we seek to support youth in understanding the historical and systemic context that created and maintains this vast inequity and poverty. Our action will be to develop curriculum and school/community partnerships that provide basic financial literacy skills, and at the same time, challenge educators and youth to consider individual, community, and public policy solutions to help build generational wealth in marginalized communities, and to take active, collective steps to close the racial wealth gap.

Facilitators: Samuel Reed, III U School Humanities Educator, TAG Member, Teacher Consultant Philadelphia Writing Project.

Tom Quinn, Central High History Teacher, PYN WorkReady Learning Team

Nicole Newman, President/CEO of Newman Networks .
