The United States faces a financial literacy crisis — with millions of young Americans lacking even the most basic money management skills. In response to this growing crisis, many of our nation's lawmakers, school boards, and governing bodies are either in the process of considering or developing plans for basic financial literacy education requirements in our nation's schools.

The Financial Literacy and Education Summit 2007 brings together leading thinkers in the area of financial literacy policy and practice to share their vision on the future of personal finance education and explore what role the government should play in this crucial issue.
