EconomicsAmerica Systems

The EconomicsAmerica program marks a commitment by a public school system or independent school to integrate economics throughout its curriculum.  Currently more than 100 school systems in the state have an EconomicsAmerica coordinator.  In turn, the regional Centers for Economic Education, the Georgia Council on Economic Education and the Council for Economic Education commit to providing the necessary teacher training, resource materials, and consulting services to EconomicsAmerica participants.
