Center for Economic Education

 

The MSU Center aims to develop in K-12 young people the economic knowledge and decision making skills they will need throughout their lives as family members, workers, citizens and business, labor, government and community leaders. The MSU Center employs multiple strategies in pursuit of its mission—

  • support economic and entrepreneurial education training to teachers who in turn will teach students;
  • produce and distribute teaching materials for use by teachers in K-12 classrooms throughout the curriculum;
  • maintain an affiliation with the National Council on Economic Education and the Kentucky Council on Economic Education to draw upon their strength in national and state programming, curriculum materials, basic research and public awareness of the need for economic education;
  • involve local business and community organizations in implementing economic education into the service-area schools.
