Utah Council on Economic Education

VISION
An educational environment in Utah where a student's K-12 learning experience will provide understanding of economics sufficient to make informed choices as consumers, producers, and citizens.

MISSION
The mission of Economic Education is to create, improve, and support K-12 economic education programs throughout Utah by helping teachers learn economics and providing methods and materials for teaching it effectively.

The Utah Council on Economic Education (UCEE) is a state affiliate of the National Council on Economic Education. The UCEE was established in Salt Lake City in 1962. The UCEE meets quarterly and is structured with officers and committees and serves as an advisory board to the State Board of Education.

The purpose of the Utah Council on Economic Education is to promote economic education in Utah by:

  1. Exploring economic problems of concern to students and recommending improved economic education methods, curricula, or procedures;
  2. Developing and/or distributing resource materials to assist educators in better understanding our economic system;
  3. Assisting in financing economic education with primary emphasis upon development of improved methods, materials and teacher training;
  4. Planning developing, and conducting in-service economic education seminars and courses for teachers in cooperation with the State Office of Education, colleges and universities, and other educational organizations;
  5. Assisting educational agencies and organizations in the evaluation of the effectiveness of existing or proposed economic education programs.
