Prof. Olivia S. Mitchell recently spoke with 150 high school teachers at the PwC and K@W Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility, a three-day, intensive learning experience where educators deepened their knowledge and teaching skills about financial literacy and business. The September 28-30 seminar took place at the Wharton School’s Philadelphia campus and was attended by 150 public and private high school teachers, principals, administrators and superintendents. In addition, many additional people participated online.

The seminar dealt with two major concerns facing financial literacy education: the fact that fewer than 20 percent of educators feel prepared to teach financial literacy; and that many people cite costs as a significant barrier to receiving the necessary training.
