Are American students equipped to negotiate economic realities?
With constant changes in the housing, job, and stock markets, not to mention international trade, American students more than ever need to know how our economy connects with the world around us. As tomorrow’s consumers, investors, and voters, are students equipped to interpret financial news, make decisions about negotiating a college loan, and understand how economic policies affect their wallets?
The Nation’s Report Card: Economics 2012, Grade 12 reveals how well 12th-grade students know and apply the concepts of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and international trade in real-world contexts, as measured by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
Join the National Assessment Governing Board for a webinar exploring the results of this timely report. Webinar panelists include Nan J. Morrison, CEE’s President and CEO; and Edward Alvarez, Assistant Principal, Thomas A. Edison Career & Technical Education High School, who was honored at the 2012 Visionary Awards as one of CEE’s Teacher Champions.
