At the request of the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), the Ohio Education Research Center conducted a survey of Ohio high schools’ implementation of financial literacy education, as required by Ohio Revised Code Section 3313.603(C)(7). The survey was developed to address the following questions:
1) Are districts integrating the study of financial literacy into their high school curriculum?
2) What types of financial literacy curriculum and instruction are Ohio’s school districts providing in order to meet the state requirements?
3) What subjects and grades have financial literacy content standards embedded in the curriculum?
4) How long is the financial literacy content taught?
5) What type(s) of licensure do teachers who are teaching financial literacy hold?
6) Are Ohio school districts partnering with other entities (e.g. banks) to deliver financial literacy content?
7) Are there any differences in the financial literacy content and/or delivery methods by district type?
8) What are some exemplary financial literacy education programs in Ohio?
