Council for Economic Education logoGeneral Information

The Council for Economic Education (CEE) is a leading organization in the United States seeking to improve the economic and financial literacy of K-12 students. The primary strategy used by CEE is the professional development of teachers and the development of high quality curriculum materials. Based in New York, the CEE is the umbrella organization of a network of over 240 state and university affiliates (the Purdue Center being one of them), who disseminate CEE programs and curriculum materials. Each year CEE and its affiliates train approximately 55,000 teachers in person, who, in turn, reach approximately five million students through the United States.

CEE sponsors the national Economics Challenge high school students and the online Gen i-Revolution personal finance simulation.

The following three minute video provides an overview of CEE and its history.
