Teacher Workshops and Centers for Economic Education
The Florida Council on Economic Education and its University partners are committed to helping teachers make each and every economics class a success. Currently, the FCEE supports 4 Centers for Economic Education that train k-12 teachers in economics, entrepreneurship, personal finance and the free enterprise system. All training is correlated to Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

Professional development for teachers achieves an extraordinary multiplier effect, with every elementary teacher reaching 25-30 students each year and middle and high school teachers reaching 125-150 students each semester. Once trained, a teacher is able to integrate economics and personal finance lessons into his or her classroom for years, thus helping to make literally thousands of students economically and financially literate.
