The Economics Center was awarded a research grant from the Council on Economic Education to evaluate its financial literacy program. The goal of this project is to measure if the Economics Center's complete financial literacy program (which includes teacher training, curriculum support or re-design, and community engagement in classrooms) is effective at helping students learn personal finance topics. Five local schools are participating in the project taking place this year. This project is part of the Economic Center's on-going efforts to measure the impact of its educational programs, as well as produce insightful research about what works for helping students achieve.
