Why Economic Education? When children and youth have a better understanding of economics, they can make informed choices and function in a changing world economy. Youth who understand economics when they graduate are more prepared to shape their own futures and that of their communities. Economics curriculum also enhances learning in math, technology, and social studies, all while teaching and reinforcing important skills in critical thinking, decision making, research, cooperation and communication.

We got great feedback from the last AKNomics! class... “[Before the class] I didn’t know how to answer how to utilize economics and financial education in my classroom. How am I going to get the economics in there? As the class continued and Theresa talked about how economics is more than just finances and money, it really is about making decisions. Greg elaborated on this idea and told us how valued Economists are because of the methodical way folks with this degree are taught to think and make decisions. On the second day we spend a good amount of time on decision making flowcharts or matrices. I realized that these skills of how to evaluate can be used in every classroom in every subject and age level. When you teach a person to read you open up innumerable doors to them to gain information on their own. When you help a person evaluate and make decisions you likewise give them a tool that will help them all through their life. This is a job skill and a life skill.” Traci Sanders (Matsu)
