Billy,
Thanks for your question. The short answer is “No” and the reasons are the following:
1) The world of personal finance is constantly changing and we want teachers and students to have the most current information available. We are constantly adding new resources, whether they be videos, articles, simulations or activities to keep the curriculum fresh and current.
2) Mission. We believe that all young people deserve a free, quality education to take control of their financial futures. Our resources will ALWAYS be free. Unfortunately, the process of creating a textbook requires significant capital and would make it difficult for us to keep our promise of a “free education.”
3) We tried this…once. We had a similar request like this come in about a year ago. We mobilized our team to put together all of our materials into a hard copy format for a teacher that was pitching their school board on adding a personal finance course. After hundreds of hours of work and 8 thick binders of our full curriculum, we shipped it to an upstate NY address….and waited….and waited….and waited for feedback. When we finally heard back from the teacher, they said that another teacher had picked up the course and was using another curriculum. That hurt but the more important lesson was that NGPF is much better at shipping bytes than hard copies of our curriculum.

Having said all of this, I would like to hear more specifically about what you are looking for to see if we can assist you. Ping me at tim@nextgenpersonalfinance.org.
