​​Center for Economic Education

​The UW-Stevens Point Center for Economic Education is affiliated with the National Council on Economic Education and EconomicsWisconsin. Our goal is "helping children understand how our economy works." To accomplish this goal, we work with K-12 teachers in all subject areas and grade levels to provide curriculum materials, teaching strategies, and professional development. Last year more than 500 Wisconsin teachers participated in the courses, workshops, and presentations of our center.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Center for Economic Education is to advocate for better and greater school-based economic and personal finance education at the K-12 level; and to educate young people, primarily through well-prepared teachers, so they may become empowered with economic and financial literacy. This is done by offering:

  • Advice to schools on developing, implementing and evaluating economics and financial literacy in the school curriculum

  • Teacher training programs and workshops focusing on specific economic and financial literacy topics and ways to integrate them into the classroom 

  • Up-to-date curriculum resource center including elementary and secondary school economics and financial literacy texts and teacher guide. 

  • Study tours to transition economy and other developing countries where teachers are seeking to improve economic and financial literacy
