Economics Arkansas equips PreK-12 teachers with standards-based resources and professional development to teach economics and personal finance. By teaching teachers, who in turn teach students, EA maximizes its impact exponentially.
Using project-based, grade appropriate, innovative methods, students can master an understanding of economics and personal finance and apply that knowledge for success in a free-market economy.
The goal is for students to know how the world works so that they understand how to become responsible citizens, consumers and members of the workforce.
