Welcome to the California Council


Serving the Teachers and Students of California.

The California Council on Economic Education supports economics education and financial literacy across the state by working to help teachers, schools and districts implement economic education requirements in a meaningful way for their students.  CCEE's overaching mission is to help California's students gain a real-world understanding of economics and personal finance so they can make better decisions and compete and succeed in the global economy.

CCEE is affiliated with the Council for Economic Education and its nationwide network of state Councils. The California Council works in partnership with the California Department of Education, the California State University, the California Association of School Economics Teachers (CASET), the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and other organizations throughout the state. We deliver economics programs through our Centers for Economic Education located on university and college campuses.

Leading the charge for economic education in California, the Council pioneered the Economics Mandate passed in 1985 by the California Legislature requiring completion of a one-semester course in economics prior to high school graduation.
