The South Carolina Council on Economic Education
Helping K-12 Teachers Teach Economics and Personal Finance
What We Do
The South Carolina Council on Economic Education (SC Economics) is the only statewide non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to improving economic and personal finance education by helping K-12 teachers to teach and engage their students to be active, successful, and prosperous members of our global economy.
Our mission is to provide teachers with the training, resources, and support necessary to help them implement economics and personal finance in their classroom.

Increase in Participation
SC Economics is proud to have an increase in teacher participation over the last few years. In addition to workshop participation, student contest participation has also increased. To read more about these success stories and much more, check out our Annual Report.
Teacher Workshop at Synovus Bank
SC Economics has made an impact in over 90% of the school districts in South Carolina!
Each year, SC Economics created a map of South Carolina, tagging schools that have had a teacher participate in Professional Development with SC Economics (green) and schools that have had students participate in SC Economic contests and competitions (blue).
Take a moment to explore the map and see if your school participated last year.

Survey of the States
Every two years, the Council for Economic Education (CEE) conducts a comprehensive look into the state of K–12 economic and financial education in the United States, collecting data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The biennial Survey of the States serves as an important benchmark for progress in K–12 economic and financial education, revealing both how far we’ve come as a country—and how far we still have to go. The Survey of the States is critical for our understanding of where resources are most needed, in terms of outreach and advocacy.
