Abstract

Teachers are influential individuals in the society.  They can positively influence various aspects of people's lives.  If financially learned, they can become role models for students and help develop a financially responsible family.  Thus, teachers are key contributors to the development of society.  This study aimed to assess the degree of financial attitude and the level of financial management of public elementary school teachers in Tanjay City, Negros Oriental during the School Year 2019-2020 as a whole and when grouped according to age, sex, civil status, educational attainment, family monthly income, and location of residence. It also sought to establish if there is a significant difference in the degree of their financial attitude and their level of financial management when they are grouped according to the variables.  It also determined if a significant relationship exists between financial attitude and financial management.  Findings were used for a financial literacy program that seeks to improve the financial attitude and financial management of the said teachers.
