The National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) is a nationwide network that leads in promoting economic literacy with students and their teachers. NCEE’s mission is to help students develop the real-life skills they need to succeed: to be able to think and choose responsibly as consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce, and effective participants in a global economy. This organization provides teacher training and materials to instill an understanding of crucial economic principles for K-12 graders. “Financial Fitness for Life” helps students apply economics and decision-making skills to the real world of earning and spending an income, savings, using credit, investing, and managing money. This comprehensive K-12 program consists of teacher resource manuals, student workbooks, parent guides, interactive
activities, and a CD-ROM.
