Ohio Personal Finance Standards Alignment

Ohio Personal Finance Standards Alignment

Besides the combined Economics and Financial Literacy standards, Ohio’s Financial Literacy Implementationi Committee have also published recommended standards for a stand-alone Personal Finance course in high schools in Ohio.

These instructional recommendations are more substantial for personal finance than the combined Economics and Financial Literacy standards – we have tailored our Personal Finance and Investing libraries of activities to meet or exceed all Ohio recommendations.
