NAIC Jumps in with Educators at Jump$tart Conference
Teachers are starting to use materials developed by the NAIC to help students learn about insurance as part of a broader financial literacy curriculum. To promote consumer education for insurance, NAIC staff attended the 2016 Jump$tart National Educator Conference, held in Dallas in early November.
The NAIC was onsite to share Insurance 101 for Teen Drivers – an interactive classroom presentation module that helps teachers show teens how bad driving decisions negatively impact auto insurance costs. Educators also picked up other Insure U resources and offered their thoughts on future Insure U outreach to students.
