The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE) mission is to teach K-12 students about economics and personal finance so they can make better decisions for themselves, their families and their communities. We carry out our mission by providing resources and training to K-12 educators and have done so for over 70 years. Nearly two-thirds of the tens of thousands of teachers we reach virtually and in-person are in low to moderate income schools. All resources and programs are developed by educators and delivered by our 200 affiliates across the country in every state. Through our student-facing programs, including the National Personal Finance Challenge and the National Economics Challenge and Invest in Girls, CEE continues to inform, motivate and inspire young minds across the country. We also advocate for more and better education in personal finance and economics, primarily through CEE’s biennial Survey of the States.

Uvalde, Texas
All of us were affected this week by the senseless, evil actions in Uvalde, Texas. Our thoughts and prayers are with educators and students across our nation and especially the families of the precious children and teachers taken too soon. Here is a message from our CEO, Laura Levine:

“As I lead an organization that strives to better the financial futures of our nation’s children, I’m grief-stricken for the children of Uvalde whose futures have been cut short. As a parent, my heart breaks for their parents. And of course, Jump$tart’s special love and admiration for teachers makes it almost unbearable to have lost two more. I know you will join the Jump$tart team as we mourn this senseless loss and hope for a better tomorrow.” -Laura Levine

John W. Ryan, President and CEO, CSBS
Many of you have already heard the sad news that John Ryan, President and CEO of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, passed away unexpectedly on May 16.  Here is a link to the CSBS announcement. John represented CSBS on Jump$tart’s national Board since 2011. He was a thoughtful, steadfast supporter of Jump$tart and our effort to advance financial literacy, and generously hosted Jump$tart’s summer Board meeting at CSBS. We hope you will join us in recognizing his leadership in the banking field, mourning his passing, and extending condolences to his family, friends, and CSBS.
