The 34th Annual Summer Economic Institute for Teachers is a unique opportunity for high school and community college educators to come to Stanford for a week to learn from leading world economists, share resources, and engage in thought-provoking discussions. Educators will leave feeling honored as professionals, intellectually refreshed, and armed with new ideas for their classrooms.
