COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's treasurer is set to announce a new state program that will bring government and business together to offer financial education programs to high school students.
Republican Josh Mandel planned to announce the first set of school districts participating in the Financial Edge program at Columbus Downtown High School on Tuesday.
The effort will create public-private partnerships to meet new state-mandated financial literacy requirements kicking in beginning with the Class of 2014. The initial phase of the program will be introduced in urban school systems, with the same resources made available to school districts across Ohio.
A 2007 law established new financial literacy requirements for Ohio graduates. High schools have flexibility on how to incorporate financial education into the curriculum.
