Happy Fourth of July!

As we have many freedoms in our country, the freedom of choice is best when we teach our students the economics of making good choices.  Thank you for supporting the work of Econ Illinois in providing the education to better prepare our children for the free world in which they live.

On behalf of Econ Illinois, we wish you a happy and safe Independence Day!
