April is Financial Literacy Month!
April marks an important month in education. This month we celebrate both Financial Literacy and Mathematics and Statistics Awareness. This is an opportunity for schools to encourage students and their families to engage in learning that sets the foundation for a bright future. It is critical for students to be financially literate and to understand mathematics and statistics as important drivers in our current world. The Connecticut State Department of Education encourages districts, schools and informal education partners to promote this month by deepening the understanding of these topics during the month of April and beyond. Together we can increase financial knowledge and appreciate the diverse applications of mathematics and statistics.
