Welcome to Next Gen Personal Finance's August 2016 Newsletter
Welcome to the latest edition of the NGPF Newsletter (#22 for those of you scoring at home). Did you know that when hiring managers are asked about the most commonly required skills to get a decent paying job, they respond "spreadsheets?"So, this month we provide you with ideas on how you might incorporate spreadsheets into your classroom.
