Thank you for supporting economic education in Georgia

Each year, the Georgia Council on Economic Education teaches thousands of teachers how to teach economics through workshops, classroom materials, and special programs. Most workshops are provided at little or no cost to the teacher or school system, lesson materials are included, and substitute reimbursement is offered so classroom teachers can attend. GCEE helps teachers teach economics through the generous support of individuals, businesses, and foundations. Here are the supporters that make GCEE’s work possible.
