FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- EdisonLearning, a longtime innovator in public education and leading provider of digital learning solutions for grades 6-12, is adding a new Career and Money course to its catalog of core and elective eCoursesThe new Your Career and Money elective course will fall into a host of programming in the Career and Life Prep courses for the 2022-2023 school year. The course explores universal skills students need for the workplace, college campus, and throughout their lives. The curriculum centers around financial literacy focused on short-term and long-term money choices. Students will explore occupations to understand what interests them and be equipped
with knowledge of the hiring process, time management, communication, and networking.
This addition to the EdisonLearning catalog follows a number of states announcing personal finance graduation requirements. After the pandemic and the current state of personal finance across the country, state education boards and legislators want to protect their future constituents. These requirements include Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Idaho, Arizona, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, South Carolina, and Texas, with Michigan and Florida signing bills in the past two months. EdisonLearning understands how difficult it can be to bring on a new curriculum and hire a personal finance teacher, particularly as the teacher shortage rages on. With the addition of their Career and Life Prep courses, they hope to take the pressure off districts.
“Our focus is always to provide every student access to an excellent education and the attainment of essential life skills,” says Thom Jackson, President, and CEO of EdisonLearning. “Through our new Career and Money eCourse, students will gain an understanding about how best to explore job and career options, and just as importantly, learn about personal money management. Both of which are critical foundations for them to lead a secure life, as well as become contributing members of society.”
