An affiliate of the Council of Economic Education, LCEE is a statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to provide free workshops, in-service training and curricula in the area of personal finance and economic literacy for K-12 teachers in public private, parochial home and charter schools. Our primary means of reaching teachers is through economic workshops, the first of which was held in June 1965 at Tulane University. Our programming arms at various accredited colleges and universities throughout Louisiana enable us to bring the highest level of professional development opportunities to educators, and provide them with free teaching materials aligned to the Common Core standards and matched to meet or exceed state Grade Level Exceptions and benchmarks.
To help Louisiana’s K-12 students develop economic literacy as a critical component in their lives as consumers, savers, investors, members of the workforce, responsible citizens, and effective participants in the Louisiana and global economies.
Develop the citizenry of Louisiana to have the knowledge, understanding, and skills to make informed economic choices.
