Education Dive ​and Good Call ​Feature Cowin Financial Literacy Program


A story on Education Dive featuring financial literacy education programs includes TC's Cowin Financial Literacy Education Program. In "Tips, tricks and solutions for teaching financial literacy": "Teachers College at Columbia University’s Joyce Cowin Financial Literacy Program also aims to help. Aimed specifically at 11th and 12th graders, their Loot Inc.  financial literacy initiative is designed to bring experiential learning to disadvantaged urban schools. The Loot Inc. website offers resources for teaching financial literacy and a virtual community of teachers. The school also offers an annual program, the Cowin Financial Literacy Institute, every July to train teachers. Held in NYC, the training is free and even gives attendees a $200 stipend."

​A story in Good Call, a free, online database to help consumers make financial decisions, Educators Need Support in Teaching Financial Literacy to Students, Report Reveals cites several money tips from TC's Anand Marri, who helped create the Cowin Financial Literacy program.
