About the Council


OUR MISSION

The mission of the Nebraska Council on Economic Education is to act as a catalyst and lead a statewide initiative to advance economic literacy.


OUR VALUES

We believe that students should develop economic ways of thinking and problem solving that they can use in their lives as consumers, savers, investors, members of the workforce, responsible citizens and effective participants in a global economy.


OUR VISION

The vision of the Nebraska Council on Economic Education is to ensure that all students from kindergarten through high school have an on-going education in economics and to enhance teachers' understanding of economics and their ability to teach economic concepts to their students.
