  1. Incorporating Financial Education and Hands-On Money Management into After School Programs Laura Ewing, Texas Council on Economic Education, Laura Rosen, Center for Public Policy Priorities, Out-of-School-Time Initiatives Conference 2014 Fort Worth, TX July 25, 2014

  2. Joint statewide initiative of the Center for Public Policy Priorities and RAISE TEXAS that invests in innovative programs that integrate financial and asset building activities into statewide platforms, including education, social services, and the workplace. Initiatives: • Texas Children’s Savings Partnership • Tax-Time Savings Project • Employer-based asset building Fueling economic mobility for Texas families and children Sign up for our email updates at “Like” us on Facebook

  3. Why Connect Financial Education and Savings Accounts? • Academic achievement – educational savings account ownership is associated with higher scores on math achievement tests • Improved college aspirations – children with < $500 in savings for college are 3X more likely to attend and 4X more likely to graduate from college • Financial health - students with a savings account 7 years later were 2X more likely to have a savings account and 4X more likely to own stocks

  4. Existing School-Based Financial Education and Savings Account Programs • Offered in a school setting • Typically involve savings matches and/or other incentives • Restricted accounts, to be used for higher ed • -San Francisco’s Kindergarten to College • -KIPP College Account Program • -Propel Schools’ Fund My Future • -Mississippi College Savings Account Program • -Cuyahoga County (Cleveland), OH’s College Savings Account Program • -Nevada’s College Kick Start Program

  5. Assessing Financial Capability Outcomes (AFCO) Youth Pilot • Study aims to better understand how to provide children with the financial skills to become economically successful • Focus on elementary-age students • Rigorous examination of financial education combined with student account access

  6. Financial Education + In-School Banking Eau Claire, WI Eau Claire, Wisconsin • Study Timeline & Sample • -Eau Claire, WI • 2011-12: 4th & 5th grade • 2012-13: 4th grade & follow-up survey for 5thgraders • -Amarillo, TX • 2012-13: 4th grade Amarillo, TX

  7. Research Questions What is the impact of financial education and in-school account access, alone and in combination, on students: • Financial Knowledge • Attitudes towards savings and financial institutions • Behavior, e.g. opening and using bank accounts

  8. Financial Education • 5 or 6 lessons from Financial Fitness for Life curriculum (covered nearly all Texas’ new PFL curriculum) • Content focused on Savings Account Use • Defining income, expenses and savings • Wants vs. needs, incentives and goals • Explain budgets and savings plans • Compare savings options and understanding interest • Teachers trained for 3 to 6 hours on curriculum and materials (in TX training by TCEE)

  9. In-School Banking, Amarillo • Happy State Bank Kids’ Bank • Account Type: Joint ownership savings account (also opened minor-only account for the pilot) • Frequency: Every 2-3 weeks (once a week during study period) • Bank Transactions: Kids can only make deposits at school branch • Student Staffing: Student tellers work with HSB staff (timing of research didn’t allow for student staffing during the study) • Show Video

  10. Amarillo In-School Banking Take-Up • 38% overall participation • Same or higher take-up in schools with more economically disadvantaged students

  11. Amarillo Teacher Feedback Students’ Level of Understanding: • Items discussed in lessons should take into consideration students’ income levels Kids’ Bank: • Nearly all positive feedback from teachers • Students excited about saving & Kids’ Bank participation brought concepts taught to life

  12. Insights and Successful Practices to Operating an In-school Banking Program • Present banking program and financial education curriculum to students and parents as one program • Have school district market in-school banking program to students • Offer accounts that meet the needs of all families

  13. Overall Results • Large effects of education on knowledge questions • Financial education appears to produce a large improvement in financial knowledge—an increase in the number of correct questions between 1.8 and 2.0 • No evidence that having a bank branch in the school has an added effect on learning • Moderate effects of in-school banking and education on attitudes about financial institutions and saving

  14. Overall Results • Behavior - Financial education and bank access boost bank account ownership by kids • Financial education increases the number of banked students by about 3.5% • $25 incentive causes about an 18.1% marginal increase in students opening accounts • Effects persist … at least for a year

  15. Texas Children’ Savings Partnership

  16. TCSP’s Quest for “Off-the Shelf” Product Core Elements • No fees • Restricted for Postsecondary ed. • Incentivized participation • Connected to PFL curriculum and K-12 system • SSN’s not required to open accounts • Offered in partnership with local financial institutions
