CEE Report Winter 2024

In 2023, CEE moved the needle on our mission. We refreshed our content, delivered best-in-class professional development, grew student engagement significantly, and expanded access to our programming.

2024 brings excitement as we celebrate our 75th anniversary. Our mission is enduring – there is always a next generation of students to support in building lives of stability and mobility using the tools and knowledge they gain from CEE.

While we face a world with many challenges, we hope that you will continue to support our foundational work for children.

About the Council for Economic Education

The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K–12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities, and learn to successfully navigate in our ever-changing economy. We carry out our mission in three ways.  We advocate to require financial and economic education in every state. We provide training, tools and resources – online and live through over 180 affiliates nationwide – to more than 40,000 teachers annually who in turn bring the highest quality economics and personal finance instruction to over 4 million students. We deepen knowledge and introduce high school students to critical career capabilities through our national competitions and Invest in Girls program.
