The mission of the FTE is to promote excellence in economic education by helping teachers of economics become more effective educators and to introduce young individuals, selected for their leadership potential, to an economic way of thinking about national and international issues.
The Foundation offers workshops for high school educators and students throughout the year. Programs range from one to five days in length and offer continuing education and graduate level credit. Teachers learn to incorporate simulations into their classes and receive more advanced content instruction from college professors.
