Survey of the States: Economic, Personal Finance, and Entrepreneurship Education in Our Nation's Schools in 2007. A Report Card
National Council on Economic Education (NJ1)
This is the fifth survey since 1998 on the state of economic and personal finance education in the fifty states conducted by National Council on Economic Education (NCEE). A leader in promoting economic and personal finance education, NCEE conducts these surveys to gauge how the state standards, their implementation, course requirements, and state testing change over time. Responding to growing interest, this survey also includes, for the first time, data on the related area of entrepreneurship education. Progress continues to be made in the teaching of economics and personal finance in this nation's schools. However, much more work still needs to take place in terms of placing a greater emphasis on economics and personal finance in the K-12 curriculum; requiring separate, stand-alone courses in these subjects as part of high school graduation requirements; and testing student knowledge levels. Entrepreneurship Education, by comparison, is less emphasized in the curriculum.
