In schools throughout the nation, innovative teachers are providing high quality economic education through partnerships like Springdale School District fostered with Economics Arkansas, National Council on Economic Education, Winthrop University, and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Little Rock Branch. Economics Arkansas encourages teachers to develop descriptions of their successful teaching practices, apply for grants and state awards, and encourages replication of successful teaching in order to increase K-12 economic literacy and wise decision-making of all Arkansas students. Initiated by the National Task Force on Economic Education, Springdale Public Schools join with Economics Arkansas to co-host an annual fall and summer economic teacher training.
