Throughout life it is necessary to deal with financial issues, for we are economic agents and our decisions on this matter will impact the present time and in our future. Financial education is important in all stages of life, and learn from an early age helps support our behaviors.
And the school is the environment in which children and young people acquire not only knowledge but also the ability to live in society, making choices that influence the realization of their dreams and their attitudes influence in society.
Financial education, understood as a cross-cutting theme, dialogues with the various disciplines of the curricula of primary and secondary education, in order to enable the student to understand and fulfill their aspirations and be prepared for the various stages of life.
Aiming to introduce financial education in the whole process of formation of children and young people, the ENEF developed the Financial Education Program in Schools, bringing this knowledge to basic education.

In light of the document “Guidelines for Financial Education in Schools”, a pedagogical approach translated into structured educational activities and aligned to the curriculum of the nine years of elementary school was developed.
The goal is to contribute to the main school issues today, building a thought in financial education from the early years of this school year.
In addition to collaborating in the areas of knowledge of financial education, the initiative was also designed to provide performance improvement of students in Portuguese and Mathematics.
The set of books, one for each year of elementary school, was developed based on the concept of cycles and integrating the formal content (financial) social content (daily real situations of the students´ages). They were completed in October 2014 with the support of B3 and the Pilot Project to evaluate the results is in the phase of getting resources to be made possible.
