The International Economic Summit program is a hands-on, activity-based learning program for high school students that teaches the significance and basic concepts of globalization, international economics, and what it takes to make highly interdependent nations competitive in today’s dynamic economic environment.
The program is widely implemented in the state of Idaho, where it originated, reaching 5,000 high school students annually. The San Francisco Federal Reserve has trained and provided materials to more than 500 high school teachers throughout all of the states of the 12th District. The state Councils on Economic Education in Tennessee, Massachusetts, Mississippi, and Illinois have also used the program. The Summit is being implemented in China and Mexico as well.
The International Economic Summit is a program of the Idaho Council on Economic Education in the Boise State University Center for School Improvement and Policy Studies.
