El Salvador to Introduce Bitcoin Education in Schools by 2024

El Salvador’s Ministry of Education has partnered with the non-profit organization, Mi Primer Bitcoin (MPB), to incorporate Bitcoin education into the public school curriculum by 2024.

Partnership with MPB and Bitcoin Beach

John Dennehy, the founder of MPB, stated that this initiative is led by the Ministry of Education, with MPB and Bitcoin Beach providing essential support.

The group aims to create a sustainable Bitcoin economic ecosystem on the coast of El Salvador.

Curriculum and Training

The curriculum will primarily utilize content from MPB’s program, which awards students a diploma upon completion.

Training for the pilot program will begin on Sep. 7 with assistance from Bitcoin Beach.

Initially, 150 public school teachers from 75 schools will receive foundational training on Bitcoin.

Expansion and Future Plans

After the initial training, these educators will disseminate the Bitcoin curriculum in their respective institutions.

If the program proves successful, it could be implemented across all schools in the nation by the following year.

Upcoming Conference

For those interested in understanding the evolving landscape of digital assets, the upcoming Benzinga’s Future of Digital Assets conference on Nov. 14 will offer deep insights and discussions on these topics.
