As Texas emerges from an unprecedented pandemic that shut down businesses and schools, we find ourselves marveling at the ways bankers and teachers transitioned to a new dynamic in approaching financial education.
On the business side – there was the PPP, with community bankers leaning in and helping small business obtain funding to stay in business. We learned so much about the needs for business and financial literacy.
On the school side – there was the pandemic. What do you do when schools (K-16) literally shut down and move to a virtual method of teaching? We learned about the resilience of teachers and families and students, along with a slew of best practices going forward, particularly in the area of financial education.
Join us in this 14th Annual Summit. Learn how banks have pivoted to collaborate with financial and business education leaders to help their small business customers; learn how educators have pivoted to engage students in the exercises of saving, budgeting, credit, debit and how there are consequences and rewards for understanding good and bad credit. Learn how the rules of the Community Reinvestment Act are changing to accommodate this new reality as we emerge from the pandemic.
