The absolute best in promoting financial literacy

There are so many people that talk about how much we need personal finance in our schools...well, this guy is doing something about it! Providing tools and education for teachers so they can teach the students. Awesome podcast and guests to go along with their mission.

PS...I absolutely LOVED hearing from the kids! They will be far ahead of their peers because of the financial education they received early on. Best of luck to them!
