VIDEO: Why economic education is important for students

Students explain how economic education changed their lives and helps them feel better prepared for the future.  


Students in grades 4-12 manage a simulated investment portfolio and compete with teams across the state. In this popular program of real-world skill, students learn saving and investing, sharpen math and research skills, and see market forces at work. Workshops for teachers also available.
