On May 2, 2018 the American Institutes for Research hosted a presentation and discussion focusing on the latest international results in financial literacy from the 2015 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).
World-renowned researcher Dr. Annamaria Lusardi presented findings relevant to PISA and financial literacy more broadly. Topics included:
- Why is financial literacy so important for today's students and young people?
- Cross-nationally, which education policy initiatives emphasize financial literacy?
- How are socioeconomic status and per capita GDP associated with financial literacy outcomes?
Registrants were given the opportunity to submit questions to be answered by the panelists during the webinar.
Presenter: Annamaria Lusardi, Founder and Academic Director, Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center at the George Washington University School of Business
Moderator: Patrick Gonzales, PISA National Project Manager, National Center for Education Statistics
