Directory of Organizations Providing Business and Economic Education Information. Fourth Edition.
Banaszak, Ronald A., Ed.; And Others
This directory, an update of the 1979 edition, provides information on nonprofit organizations with a stated interest in business, consumer, career and/or economic education. The directory has three primary purposes: (1) to provide school administrators, curriculum developers, and teachers with a comprehensive source of information about nonprofit organizations providing instructional materials and other programs to improve teaching about business and economics; (2) to provide business and economic education organizations with information about their counterparts to encourage cooperation and decrease duplication of efforts; and (3) to provide the corporations and foundations that fund business and economic education organizations with information that will enable them to improve the focus and effectiveness of their charitable contributions. The directory was compiled from the responses to questionnaires, personal letters, and telephone calls. Organizations are listed alphabetically by name, and each entry gives the objective of and provides information about the program focus, organization, geographic interest, educational level, 1984 budget, number of full-time staff, program, grants, publications, and periodicals. An appendix provides a list, classified by state, of Joint Council on Economic Education Affiliated councils and centers. Indices of organizations and educational services are also included. (AS)
