The Federal Reserve Board on Monday launched a new kids web page designed to educate middle school students about the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The new web page is designed in a user-friendly, question-and-answer format to ensure easy navigation and the ability to learn basic information about the Fed.
The new web page (www.federalreserve.gov/kids/) features information about the history, structure, and primary functions of the Federal Reserve; the Chairman of the Board of Governors; and the structure of Federal Open Market Committee. Other highlights include a kids quiz and links to other valuable resources on the Federal Reserve Board's web site.
"The Federal Reserve has a long history of promoting economic education and financial literacy. This new web page provides younger students with a basic approach to the complexities of the Federal Reserve that is both enjoyable and interesting," said Federal Reserve Board Governor Mark Olson.
