K-12 Teacher Training

The University of Kansas Center for Economic Education (KUCEE) promotes economic literacy among teachers and their students. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that all students graduate from high school with skills they need to succeed: to be able to think and choose responsibly as producers, consumers, savers, investors, voters, and participants in a global society.
