The importance of praxis in financial literacy education: An Indigenous perspective
MetadataShow full item record
We argue the importance of praxis in financial literacy education teaching practices that is, the moral and ethical nature of teaching and learning. Post the global financial crisis of 2008, the teaching of financial literacy has become a priority for many countries. Indigenous communities are often the target of broad FLE strategies and/or government policies. We present a case for praxis in financial literacy education by drawing on interview data following a financial literacy 'train the trainer' workshop in an Indigenous community in Canada that failed to gain traction.
