FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, USA, July 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — EdisonLearning, a longtime innovator in public education and the leading provider of digital learning solutions for students in grades 6-12 year, is adding a new Career and Money course to its catalog of core and elective online courses.
The new Your Career and Your Money elective course will be part of a slew of programs in Career and Life Readiness courses for the 2022-2023 school year. The course explores the universal skills students need for the workplace, college campus, and throughout their lives. The program focuses on financial literacy focusing on short and long term money choices. Students will explore trades to understand what interests them and equip themselves
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 degree requirements. After the pandemic and the current state of personal finances across the country, school boards and state lawmakers want to protect their future voters. 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 adopt a new curriculum and hire a personal finance teacher, especially as the teacher shortage rages on. With the addition of their career and life skills courses, they hope to ease the pressure on the districts.
“Our goal is always to provide every student with access to an excellent education and the acquisition of essential life skills,” said Thom Jackson, president and CEO of EdisonLearning. “With our new career and money online course, students will understand how to best explore job and career options and, just as importantly, learn personal money management. Both of these are essential for them to lead secure lives and become contributing members of society.
