Welcome back teachers to the 2011-12 school year!  KCEE and the six Centers for Economic Education had quite a busy summer with teacher workshops and finding new ways to help with integrating economics and personal finance in Kansas K-12 schools.  We hope many of these opportunities will help you in your classroom this year.

 

Please contact us if you have any questions about our programs and resources or if we can help with economic & personal finance education in your school.
