“The wide variety of services and support resources made available by the Council for Economic Education has served as a lifeline for myself and my students.”

CEE delivers economic education and financial literacy to K-12 students by educating the educators. Our impact is perhaps best demonstrated by what participants in our programs—teachers and students—say about their experiences. CEE is the recognized thought-leader in this field and is driving improvements from coast to coast.
