About the Iowa Council:
For Iowa students to become knowledgeable in economics and personal finance, they must have teachers who know how to bring these subjects to life in the classroom.
This is where we come in: The Iowa Council on Economic Education helps teachers teach economics in creative and inspiring ways.
While Iowa teachers must be certified to teach economics, they face the highly challenging task of engaging today’s students in the complexities of the subject.
We help teachers meet this challenge by:
- Conducting in-person teacher workshops
- Delivering special programs like the Stock Market Game™
- Creating and disseminating innovative instructional materials
Thanks to the support of businesses, foundations and individuals, we provide our services and materials at no cost to the teacher or school.
Hundreds of Iowa teachers have benefited from ICEE’s programs in the last five years. The number of Iowa students who have become better educated in economics is in the thousands.
