What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

MCEE’s purpose is to enhance the quality of instruction in economics, entrepreneurship, and personal finance to Mississippi’s K-12 students in ways that are academically sound and nonpartisan. We train teachers to be proficient in teaching students a demonstrated understanding of economic and financial literacy in order to make informed financial decisions throughout their lives. All students (K-12) need to learn grade-appropriate skills in economic and financial literacy, as well as entrepreneurial skills.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Master Teacher of Economics

The Master Teacher in Economics Program is an intense professional development program offered in collaboration with the Mississippi Department of Education to provide professional development to teachers in economics and financial education. Teachers’ average score on a test of economics literacy is 62 before MCEE training and 86 after the training, a 40 percent increase. The Department of Education confers the “Master Teacher of Economics” designation. (Please note that this is a State certificate program and not a degree.)
