Economic Education Institute

We partner with a network of university and college based Centers for Economic  Education led by Carroll University. The goal is to improve the quality and quantity of economic and financial education in the K-12 school curriculum.

The centers provide:

  • Advice to schools on developing, implementing and evaluating economics and financial literacy in the school curriculum
  • Educator training programs and workshops focusing on specific economic and financial literacy topics and ways to integrate them into the classroom
  • Up-to-date curriculum resource center including elementary and secondary school economics and financial literacy texts and teacher guides
