Mission Statement

It is the mission of the ESU Center for Economic Education to deliver high-quality programs and materials which facilitate knowledge of essential economics concepts and economic reasoning ability of kindergarten through senior high school students, especially in the Center's service area. Moreover, in recognizing that economic education is a continuous process, the Center will strive to have each student's exposure to economics begin in the early grades and continue through high school.

It is important to recognize that every kindergarten though twelfth grade teacher does not necessarily have the training, ability, and motivation to enthusiastically teach students economics concepts and reasoning in an effective, grade-appropriate manner. However, it is the objective of the Center to train a sufficient number of teachers so that a student has substantive experiences with high-quality economics instruction and materials several times in their education.
