As a CTE course, it offers districts extra funding of approximately $350 / student. RLFM engages students in math, personal finance, career decisions, and post-secondary education funding and selection, preparing students to achieve personal goals.
Why select RLFM? Four reasons:
- Unlike most personal financial literacy courses, RLFM is written and updated annually by award-winning financial professionals with credentials and advanced degrees. RLFM challenges students to acquire the knowledge and skills they will need in real life to solve personal and community problems.
- RLFM is a real-life course that serves as the perfect substitute for pre-calc for non-STEM students. It offers students the understanding of how and why to fund college, achieve goals and avoid future mistakes.
- While most secondary and post-secondary courses are taught with an instructional methodology of lecture, memorize, recite, RLFM applies a unique methodology to teach students how to critically think, problem-solve, work in teams, and make presentations, preparing students for the knowledge economy of the 21st century,
- Finally, RLFM is outcome based. It was piloted as an emersion summer school course for underserved sophomore students. 98% of course graduates entered college and 91.7% completed college in 6 years. This is an exceptional course for any young adult and motivates students to graduate career and college ready.
