Author: Steven Miletto

Vince Shorb – Founder & CEO of the National Financial Educators Council: Financial Education Reform in High Schools. This is episode 678 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Vince Shorb stands as a prominent advocate for financial education and reform in high school subjects nationwide. His primary objective is to ensure that today’s youth graduate with the practical skills they need to navigate life’s challenges and empower them with essential knowledge for leading secure, fulfilling lives.

Drawing from his extensive 30-year experience in the financial services and financial education sectors, Shorb has witnessed firsthand the financial struggles Americans face. He acknowledges that many long-term issues originate in early adulthood, often stemming from students graduating with insufficient or no financial education and lacking the essential skills sought by employers in the modern workforce.

In 2006, Shorb took a pivotal step toward addressing this issue by establishing the National Financial Educators Council (NFEC), an organization committed to tackling the epidemic of financial illiteracy. As the current CEO of the NFEC, he leads an IACET Accredited company and a Certified B Corporation, further underscoring his dedication to advancing financial education and subject reform in U.S. high schools.
