Ramsey Solutions and the Army National Guard Celebrate Teachers with The Ramsey Teacher Appreciation Giveaway for National Financial Literacy Month
APRIL 17, 2023
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Ramsey Solutions is celebrating 10 years of honoring teachers with a teacher appreciation giveaway during April, which is National Financial Literacy Month. This year, the Army National Guard is presenting the Ramsey Teacher Appreciation Giveaway for pre-K through 12th-grade teachers. One teacher will win a $5,000 vacation of their choice, and two additional teachers will each win a $3,000 vacation of their choice. Educators can register now through April 30 at ramseysolutions.com/teacher.
“Teachers are crucial to students and a big part of what we do here at Ramsey Solutions,” said Jim King, the executive vice president of Ramsey Education. “The work they put in during their day, and even outside of their typical hours, speaks to the devotion they have toward improving the lives of their students. To recognize educators in this small way through the teacher appreciation giveaway, it’s my hope they will feel encouraged to continue this important work of educating the next generation.”
As more states require a personal finance course to graduate high school, new research shows the importance of learning solid money principles early. The Financial Literacy Crisis in America 2023 report reveals nearly 3 in 4 Americans said if they’d learned more about personal finance in high school, they would’ve made fewer mistakes with money. Currently, only 17% of U.S. adults said they took a personal finance course in high school.
Ramsey Education’s “Foundations in Personal Finance” curriculum has helped to bridge that gap for more than 6 million students in middle schools, high schools and universities who’ve been enrolled in a class that uses the curriculum. The easy-to-use lessons meet standards in all 50 states as well as national standards for personal finance. It has now been used in more than 45% of high schools nationwide. Trusted by educators for more than 15 years, “Foundations in Personal Finance” teaches students how to budget, save, spend wisely, invest and give generously — lessons that’ll last a lifetime.
