Good news in the news! MCEE’s work and leadership has recently been featured in BOTH the Baltimore Sun and the Baltimore Banner! 

The Baltimore Banner published a Commentary by MCEE Executive Director Julie Weaver with a perspective we all share: Maryland’s students need high-quality personal finance and economics education in order to successfully manage their financial lives, reach their goals, and thrive.

As Julie says in the Commentary, “Our schools teach algebra and chemistry, poetry and world history. Isn’t teaching our children about personal finance -- developing skills they’ll use every day of their lives -- just as important?”

Also, the Baltimore Sun highlighted two teachers who recently won the Maryland Financial Education and Capability Awards for their work delivering personal finance education. Congratulations to Karen Yancey and Michelle Coates for being featured, and to all winners of the Financial Education and Capability Awards!
