The mission of The Maryland Council on Economic Education is to assure that Maryland's school children leave high school equipped with the economic knowledge and decision-making skills they will need to make informed, rational decisions as consumers, workers, citizens, savers, investors and participants in the global economy.
An understanding of basic economic principles and our free enterprise system is vital to an individual's ability to be a responsible consumer, a productive worker, a prudent saver, an investor, and an informed voter. Considering both the short and long-term economic consequences of, for example, spending and saving decisions, how much education and training to invest in, what career to choose, and the positions of political candidates on critical issues, is something children must be taught how to do.
