The Council for Economic Education'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. 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 63% of these educators come from schools serving large numbers of low- and moderate-income students.
