About Us

The Ohio Centers for Economic Education have a long history of providing educational opportunities for teachers and youth. We are directly involved in the educational training of thousands of teachers annually, improving their working knowledge of the economy, entrepreneurship, personal finance topics, and business practices. Services include teacher training and professional development programs, assisting in curriculum development, and sharing instructional models that permit economics to be the framework for improving student achievement across many subjects. Content includes the core classroom curriculum as well as critical thinking, problem solving and mathematical skill development. The Stock Market Challenge has proven to be an effective tool for reinforcing academic content standards across a number of content areas and an important resource for building financial literacy.

Over the years, the Centers have built a strong network with other organizations. We have established excellent working relationships with public and private, rural and urban school districts, the Ohio Department of Education, the Federal Reserve Bank, Ohio’s Office of the Treasury, and Career Education Centers throughout Ohio. We value their resources and partnership on important educational programs.
