CEE Report – Fall 2013

download cee report fa13 CEE Report – Fall 2013

Three times a year the Council for Economic Education releases the CEE Report, highlighting our new and noteworthy events, programs and partnerships, including pilot programs and joint ventures with key supporters.

“When we do not teach children about personal finance—about managing household budgets, saving for the future, or making informed decisions about larger investments in an education or a home—we are failing them in a shameful and costly way.

The United States cannot continue to miss the mark on the importance of financial education. Other developed countries around the world—including Australia and the United Kingdom, most recently—now require such instruction in their schools. We cannot afford to fall behind, and to fail our young people, in this fundamental respect. Our democratic system rests on the effective operation of a free market economy.”
