With economic and personal finance education, students gain the essential decision-making and money skills to thrive in our free-market economy.
Since 1962, Economics Arkansas has been training Arkansas teachers PreK-12 how to integrate principles of economics and personal finance into the classroom curriculum. Learn more and become involved.>
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 take the "eek" out of economics. For detailed information, please visit Resources at a Glance by grade level or category.
