WW... It's unclear here if this is a program out of MPS District or DC FED headquarters, but I would guess the program was developed in one of the districts closer to the people than in DC. But believe me, I learned there is a great need out there when I was asked by a group of state employee colleagues, all of whom had masters degrees, to meet with them monthly to explain the facts of life re personal finances since mine were noticeably in good shape (and driving used cars), while they were mostly all struggling, often on two good salaries, with outsized house and new-car payments plus young kids to feed and educate. Hope I can attend one of these presentations in April to see what they are covering and if they are practical and down to earth or the usual intellectual garbage.
