Financial Mentoring: Anthony McTaggart writes for Edutopia


By Hannah Moore

Our committed and charismatic COO Mr. Anthony McTaggart is at it again! The popular educational resource website, Edutopia, has published a piece by Anthony about the importance of integrated financial literacy in all communities. And what exactly do we mean by integrated? "Financial education, literacy, curriculum, or planning -- whatever you want to call it, doesn't go as far if you don't pair it with practice," Anthony relayed to readers of Edutopia. "This was the idea that spurred the revolution we now see in Southern Nevada. We have students actively involved in learning about personal finance while actually saving money weekly," he continues on in the article. Andson's financial literacy program, Andson Money, has developed curriculum based on national standards. It covers everything from the basics of needs vs wants, to how advertising can influence a consumer's purchase choice. Andson strives to provide unique, engaging lessons in personal financial education to youth grades K-12. Anthony shared this information and more with the intent of guiding groups and educators who are interested in starting financial literacy in their own community.
