The Arkansas Council on Economic Education (ACEE) is a private, non-profit, non-partisan, educational organization founded in 1962 to promote economic literacy in Arkansas.

The mission of the ACEE is to promote economic literacy and the economic-way of thinking to students in Arkansas by empowering educators to teach the fourth “r,” real life economics.

Real-life economics involves:

  • Teaching youth to invest in their human capital.
  • Teaching youth the skills to make wise choices, because all choices involve costs.
  • Teaching youth the consequences of today’s choice lies in the future.
  • Teaching youth financial literacy.
  • Teaching youth our free enterprise and market system.

Economic education is real-life, because all young people will grow up and become part of the marketplace. The ACEE provides resources and training to K-12 teachers in both public and independent schools in Arkansas. Our belief is that through training teachers, the multiplier effect is achieved. Each school year, the training a teacher receives through the ACEE can impact new children.

Our vision is to create a state of people with the real-life skills they need to succeed: to think and choose responsibly as individuals, consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce, and to be effective participants in both their local communities and the global economy. Economic literacy is essential to improve the standard of living for all Arkansans.



The ACEE is affiliated with National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) and participates in the Economics America and Economics International Programs. The ACEE collaborates with six university-based centers for economic education, which are also affiliates of the National Council, and the Polly M. Jackson Master Economics Teachers in Arkansas. The partnership strives to meet the needs of teachers by providing training, educational materials and curriculum reform in economics for Arkansas' schools. Arkansas School Districts partnering with the ACEE's Economics America program receive in-depth economic education training and consulting assistance for their teachers and administrators. Arkansas educators have a history of winning numerous national awards for excellence in teaching economic education.
