Let's remake the secondary financial literacy & economics curriculum to empower 21st-century global citizens.
Ignite > Academic's Burn.Education consulting practice is launching a collaborative curriculum R&D project that aims to disrupt legacy economics curriculum in US middle and high schools and inject more diverse perspectives and real-world relevance in alignment with the Economy Studies curriculum reform framework from Rethinking Economics.
As climate crisis, inflation, geopolitics & AI transform the neoliberal world order into whatever comes next, economics education needs to keep up. We need to empower informed global citizens to participate meaningfully in democratic debates and decisions. Otherwise, we risk a future even more unstable & unequal than the present.
So we need your help!
In the first phase of the project, we're seeking collaborators and stakeholders across the econ ed space to participate in research and development of better economics curriculum that centers relevant social challenges like sustainability, inequality and financial stability. Have ideas to contribute or simply want to know more? Well then...
