Testimonials from Past Participants

“The certification program training has made economics FUN!!! This is the first training I have been to where ALL of the teachers were engaged!


I’m so grateful to CASET and the Economics for Empowerment workshops. The activities and simulations bring energy and joy to my classroom. The students are excited to come to class and find out what we are doing that day. I’m excited that I can let learning be the focus instead of teaching."
