Council for Economic Education Economics Standards Alignment

CEE-logo

The Council for Economic Education publishes a set of National Standards for economics education. These standards are used as the basis for many state standards, or (in some cases) wholly adopted by some states with no modifications.

Our Economics curriculum is aligned specifically with these National Standards, with extra supplemental activities for investing and personal finance topics.
