Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Georgia Council on Economic Education's mission is to help teachers teach economics and personal finance in the public and independent schools of Georgia. Many K-12 teachers leave college with few, if any, courses in economics or personal finance and are then asked to teach economic and/or financial literacy concepts to students. This lack of subject matter is the main problem the Georgia Council works to address.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Georgia Council on Economic Education works to help K-12 teachers become better prepared to teach state-mandated courses in economics and personal finance so that their students leave school prepared for their economic roles as their as productive workers, informed consumers and savers, involved citizens and lifelong decision makers in a globally interdependent world.

The Georgia Council on Economic Education designs and delivers grade and content specific professional development workshops and materials for K-12 teachers. During each teacher workshop the Georgia Council teaches economic and financial literacy content and demonstrates how to use active learning lessons and teaching materials that are designed to make the study of economics and personal finance effective and interesting.

The Georgia Council on Economic Education's full time program staff delivers an average of 125 workshops to more than 2,000 K-12 K-12 teachers each year. Working with Social Studies Coordinators from across the state, the Georgia Council serves teachers from the majority of Georgia's 181 public school systems each year.
