We are an affiliate of the Council for Economic Education (CEE). The CEE’s mission is to teach K-12 students about economics and personal finance–and we have been doing so for nearly 70 years. Our goal is to reach and teach every child in every district and school so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families and their communities.
The CEE carries out its mission by educating the educators: providing the curriculum tools, the pedagogical support, and the community of peers that instruct, inspire, and guide. We strive to meet the teachers where they are with what they need. All resources and programs are developed by educators, and delivered by our 188 affiliates across the country in every state. We reach over 55,000 K-12 teachers a year through in-person professional development, and those teachers, in turn, reach approximately 5 million students throughout the country. Nearly 2/3 of these educators come from schools serving large numbers of low- and moderate-income students.
EconEdLink–our free, online educator gateway for economic and personal finance lessons and resources– attracts more than 1 million unique visitors each year.
Survey of the States
Every two years, the Council for Economic Education conducts a comprehensive look into the state of K-12 economic and financial education in the United States, collecting data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The biennial Survey of the States serves as an important benchmark for our progress, revealing both how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go.
