Monday Lunch with MISBO
featuring The Financial Health Survey
sponsored by PAISBOA and MISBO
From December through February, we administered a survey on financial health and predictions for the future to members of MISBO and PAISBOA. The results were not what we expected and may have lasting ramifications for how you plan for the future. Recently heard was the following: "we are coming up with linear solutions to exponential problems." We hope that the results of this survey will suggest the types of solutions that will better address the financial issues that many of us are facing and help us to advance the cause of independent education for generations to come.
