What Does Financial Education Look Like in Classrooms?

How can we take the taboo out of talking about money? Join us on The FitMoney Podcast for conversations on building healthy financial futures for everyone, everywhere.

When it comes to money, we often don't know where to start the conversation. And in classrooms, how do we empower students with different interests, backgrounds, and understandings of money?

These questions can be daunting, but it's critical to introduce financial concepts early so students can build healthy financial behaviors before they need them.

On today’s episode of The FitMoney Podcast, FitMoney Executive Director Jessica Pelletier sits down with Abby Coyle and Katie Gracey the Founders of Class Equity, a new classroom tool teaching responsibility, saving, and healthy spending through creating your own classroom economy. Together, they discuss how we can implement financial literacy into what students already understand and the power of giving them control, empowering teachers with what they need to explore how it looks within their classroom, and how behavioral education is best learned in our everyday life.

Stay tuned to hear from authors, teachers, creators, entrepreneurs, and much more. And, as always, for more financial literacy resources, tools, guides, games, and everything in-between, visit
