The Council for Economic Education (CEE) promotes economic and financial literacy among K-12 students to help them develop skills they need to become knowledgeable consumers, savers, investors, and effective participants in a global economy.

CEE provides economic and financial literacy programs through its network of State Councils and over 200 University based centers, mainly by training teachers. Through its extensive network, CEE annually trains thousands of teachers who have reached millions of students.
