Welcome to the Stockton Center for Economic and Financial Literacy (SCEFL) located in Stockton’s School of Education. The Center houses the southern regional office of the New Jersey Coalition for Financial Education (NJCFE).
SCEFL aims to promote economic and financial literacy among teachers and students in the New Jersey schools. Our primary mission is to assist K – 12 teachers with content and best practices in pedagogy to enhance learning. Financial capabilities—the ability to provision for oneself, one’s household, and one’s community—is crucial to local, state, and national business and economic development and sustainability.
is our tagline. Not only do the monetary returns to education pay, but economic and financial literacy helps generate increased household and national savings, investment, and business and economic growth.
New Jersey can be a leader in facilitating fluency in current and emerging economic issues and in promoting financial capabilities.
