Why teach economics and personal finance in schools?

We Invest in Teachers
All training provided by Economics Arkansas is certified by the Arkansas Department of Education, i.e., standards-based and curriculum aligned. In addition, it is relevant, engaging, hands-on and often downright fun. We like to say that we teach economics without the "eek."
