Mission and History

The Oklahoma Council on Economic Education (OCEE) is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit educational organization whose mission is promoting economic and financial literacy in Oklahoma.

Established in 1954, OCEE is affiliated with the Council for Economic Education – a national network of state councils and university-based centers.

We accomplish our mission by training K-12 teachers how to incorporate principles of economics and personal finance into the classroom curriculum.

Economic education is real life, because all young people will grow up and become part of the marketplace. OCEE provides resources and training to teachers in both public and independent schools in Oklahoma. Our principle is that through training teachers, the multiplier effect is achieved. Each school year, the training a teacher receives through OCEE will impact new children.

Ensuring our students understand economics and know how to manage their financial resources are the keys to growth and development in our great State of Oklahoma.
