Jump$tart Washington Mission Statement

Jump$tart Washington promotes the development of personal finance skills  of Washington residents, with emphasis on education for K-college youth.

Washington Students Are Failing

In 2008, Washington high school students failed the national financial literacy survey administered by Jump$tart (48.6% correct answers) . The results from Washington State look discouraging. Although slightly better than the national average, seniors here failed with a score of 48.6%. Alarmingly, Washington's numbers took a drastic decline from the 2006 survey. Washington slid 11.6% while the national score declined 7.8%.
